The previous reports of Eddie Royal signing with the Redskins were inaccurate.
Aaron Wilson of Scout.com reports that “several” teams are currently in pursuit WR Eddie Royal and the Redskins and Ravens are two of those teams.
Pro Football Talk reports that Redskins have sign 49ers WR Josh Morgan to a five-year deal that’s worth up to $12 million with $7.5 million guaranteed.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Redskins are close to signing Eddie Royal as well.
This gives the Redskins a deep group of receivers for their QB next season.
WR Pierre Garcon signs a contract with the Redskins which will pair Garcon with WR Santana Moss in the coming season. It has been known that the Redskins would target a WR in free agency this year in order to give their #2 overall pick which is presumably Robert Griffin III, another weapon to work with for this coming season.
The news comes from a Facebook status from Garcon saying that “I will be signing with the Washington Redskins and I’m very excited about the opportunity in front of me”
