Pierre Garcon Signs With Washington Redskins


Recommended Posts

8 mil a year......i would have like to see him stay a colt but you can't blame a guy for signing for about 1 mil more per yr.....it sounds like some posters turn haters if a player doesn't remain a colt.....give the guy a break, he played hard made some good catches and dropped some easy ones, you can't say Manning made him because he had a good year with terrible QB's throwing to him. His career could be over with 1 good hit so its good he got what he could.

Garcon has just blew a chance to pair with one of the best QB prospects in 20+ years. Who does he think is going to get the ball to him?

I think RG3 to Garcon could be fun

yea but not sure how RGIII will do on those deep throws that Garcon is famous for making circus catches and such. I wish Pierre the best as he enters the RGIII era. RGIII should be excited to hear this news however.

Isn't RGIII also a great prospect?

I dont blame these guys for wanting to leave - they see how everyone has been treated and want to get out while the getting out is good.

Just saw that this contract makes Pierre the 8th highest paid WR in the NFL..........un real..........

Goodness...

I mean, I liked Pierre, but they paid about twice what I had him valued at.

It is good to see that the Redskins aren't learning from their previous mistakes (cough randel el cough)

He will have RGIII and have a chance to win with a better team than the Colts. Not to mention he is going to make more money. I do not see why so much hate on Garcon for leaving.

haha They aren't going to just leave the team as is. We have to wait and see what they do, fortunately the draft is VERY strong with WRs and there are still many first and second tier free agent WRs on the market. They don't really need to bring in any big names this year, we will have to wait till next year until they have monumental cap room. Collie and White can still be solid, it's not like the Colts need to bring in 20 WRs.

I know they will have WR's on the roster. Please dont say White will be solid. lol.

Griffin is going to have fun with Pierre. Everyone can say what they want, but you all know Pierre would have had a stellar season with Peyton this year. The kid showed so much improvement, even with Painter throwing to him. Good Luck Pierre.

How are they being treated? People don't understand that this is a business and thats how the league goes. You guys get to wrapped up into being player fans than being team fans.

Some of you need to stop hating, Garcon is a great WR... he didn't sign back with the colts big deal, WRs with good QBs are a dime a dozen. I wish him the best, he's a great guy.... though I will stop following him on twitter lol

yea, i'm still in shock over this one. they could have up-ed the offer, thing is, Garcon might have wanted to play with RGIII instead of Luck. You just never know but Washington is breaking the bank on WR's. Man-o-Man. They just signed their 4th with Royal out of Denver.

that's just how the redskins operate. they traded all their draft picks, so they are signing FA's

    • Strength of schedule based on last year records is not great. Too much turnover and changes year to year. Vegas lines or some sort of advanced analytics projections are probably better for SoS.
    • Taking a break from NBA (Pacers stink BTW lol), and deep diving the Colts Schedule (will likely post something tomorrow)...  With all the talk on OL, extensions, etc, decided to quickly take a look at our OL and projections, and compare to other teams.   TLDR General Notes Colts Highest NFL OL spend already at 53.3M (prior to extensions), and 28% of salary cap (assumes Fisher's 9.4 is in 2021) Projections Nelson - 18M (+12M) - highest paid LG Smith - 16M (+14M) - top 3 paid RT If both are extended this year, Indy would be spending 79M on OL, and 27ish M more than the next NFL team. If the salary cap goes up to 200M next year (from 188M this year), Colts could be spending nearly 40% of the cap on OL if they simply resign Glow for the same, and that doesn't count a raise for Fisher if they choose to resign. If Fisher recovers, he's likely to get 15M or more next year, pushing the yearly up (+5 or more) even more. Glow, while a bargain IMO, and the best weak link in the NFL, is still making top 10 money. He's in a contract year. See SB teams spend and performance rank farther below.  NFL Position High, Position 10th LT: Top 23M/Y, 10th 14.75M/Y Fisher: 17th (9.4M) LG: Top 16M/Y, 10th 6.0M Nelson: 10th (6.0M) OC: Top 12.5/Y, 10th 9.0M/Y Kelly: 2nd (12.4M) RG: Top 18M/Y, 10th 5M/Y Glow: 9th (5.4M) RT: Top 18M/Y, 10th 8M/Y Smith: 44th (1.8M) Other T: Tevi (2.5M), Davenport (1.1M), Holden (0.8M), Od'Donnell (0.7M) Other G: Reed (1.3M), Fries (0.9M), Elderkamp (0.9M) Other C: Hunt (1.0M), Pinter (0.9M) Current Top 5 OL spending 2021 / 2020 spending rank / 2020 OL Rank 1.

    • Adam Shefter is reporting that it's a one-year deal at $9.4 million. There may be some cap management voodoo going on with it though, so the details could still be a bit murky. If he comes back close to his Pro Bowl form, it's a bargain, and if not, there isn't any long-term cap damage. I think he is certainly worth the gamble.
    • Yup, tough opening stretch, but easy closing stretch.  I'm Ok with that.
    • I can definitely see a scenario were the Colts are 8-5, get a much needed win (Hou) and bye. Then rattle off 4 wins to finish 12-5.
