Redskins Not Messing Around with Free Agency

Posted By Mercedes Green On Mar 14 2012 @ 9:21 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

On the first day of free agency the Redskins are already being very aggressive, despite having half the $$ available in their salary cap because of the uncapped 2010 season and front-loading contracts.

The Redskins have signed WR Josh Morgan, formerly of the 49ers, to a 5 year $12 over the first 2 years ($7.5 million guaranteed and the last 3 can be voided).  Morgan’s stats:  131 catches, 9 TDs, 13.5 yard average in 4 years with 49ers.  Last October he broke his right leg.  Morgan was born in DC.

They have signed WR Pierre Garcon, formerly of the Colts, to another 5 year contract for $42.5 million, $20.5 million guaranteed, including an $11 million signing bonus.  Garcon’s stats:   188 catches for 16 TDs, 13.4 yard average in his 4 years with Colts.  Last year he had 70 receptions, 6 TDs for 947 yards.

They have also re-signed DE Adam Carriker to a 4 year contract for $20 million.

The Redskins are also talking with Bronco’s WR Eddie Royal.  Royal was born in Alexandria, VA.

As for cuts, the Redskins have released S Oshiomogho Atogwe (the only Canadian on the team) and FB Mike Sellers.
