Pierre Garcon to the Redskins
The Redskins are all set to draft Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick they acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Rams, and now they know at least one of his targets for the 2012 season: Colts free agent receiver Pierre Garcon.
Garcon said on his Facebook page that he has reached an agreement with the Redskins.
“I wanted you all to hear it from me 1st before u saw it on the news. I will be signing with the Washington Redskins and I’m very excited about the opportunity in front of me," he wrote. "I want to thank all Colts fans from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support you’ve shown me the past 4 years and I hope that at some level u will still follow my career, as I will continue to share my life with you on here.”
It remains to seen whether the Redskins add yet another receiver in free agency. The team is said to be very interested in Chargers free agent speedster Vincent Jackson.
