The Washington Redskins never hesitate to spend big in free agency, and this year they appear set to devote significant money to the wide receiver position.
Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that the Redskins are making plans to add a high-profile free-agent receiver.
Vincent Jackson would apparently be high on the Redskins’ list, if the Chargers don’t slap the franchise tag on him. Pierre Garcon, who turned down an offer of a contract extension from the Colts, is another option. Other possibilities for the Redskins include Reggie Wayne, Marques Colston, Stevie Johnson, Plaxico Burress and Mario Manningham.
The availability of several starting wide receivers in free agency should make it easy for the Redskins to upgrade the position. The bigger question of who will throw to the Redskins’ receivers remains unanswered.
