By late April, the Redskins will have a quarterback. And they’re now rounding up receivers.
Not long after signing Pierre Garçon from the Colts, the Redskins have struck a deal with former 49ers receiver Josh Morgan, a league source tells PFT.
It’s a five-year deal that, based on the language, will void to two years. The device was used to push 80 percent of the cap hit for the signing bonus into 2013, given the Redskins’ unexpected loss of $18 million in 2012 cap space.
The two-year deal is worth up to $12 million, with $7.5 million guaranteed. (It’s unclear at this point how much of it is “fully” guaranteed or guaranteed for injury only.)
The four-year veteran grew up in D.C. He had a career-high 698 receiving yards in 2010.
