According to Pierre Garcon himself via Twitter, he is signing with the Washington Redskins. That didn’t even take an hour for the former Colt to latch on with another team, and he will now be catching passes, presumably from former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Garcon is one of the best deep threats in the NFL, and will be a huge addition to the Washington offense which uses a ton of vertical routes on play-action passes.

This is a solid move for the Redskins to start off free agency.
