History: List of 2nd Tier WRs Redskins Have Brought in Before

Let's be straight: the 2011 Redskins' Wide Receiver corps was about as intimidating as a kitten fight. In an attempt to boost that unit and give Robert Griffin III some weapons, the Redskins added speedsters Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan. While Garcon put up solid numbers as a #2 with Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky as his QB, he isn't really a true #1 WR. Does that even really matter? Who's the #1 WR for the Pats? The plan, I presume, is to put speed on both sides of the ball and have Cooley and Fred demand attention in the middle. Either way, it's hard to ignore the fail train of second tier Free Agent Wide Receivers that have rolled through Washington, D.C. Stallworth, Armstrong, Gaffney all had production at some point, I guess, but let's be real. Stallworth was released mid-season, Armstrong lost the starting job, and Gaffney, who was a bright spot, has no ability to gain substantial yards after the catch.

It should also be noted that proven #1 Wide Receivers don't choose teams that haven't won more than six games in the last three years (unless a GM wants to give them Ted Danson type of money like the Fins outrageously did with Brandon Marshall). Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan should get credit in that department where Cerrato failed. Now it's time to find for Shanahan to find that free agency diamond in the rough. Hopefully Garcon and/or Morgan is that guy. Here's a list of past WRs:



Previous recent notables...

And some horrible names from the way past...

  • Andre Reed
  • Mark Carrier Brandon Lloyd
  • Irving Fryar
  • Jacquez Green
  • Chris Doering

Of course, Laveranues Coles and Santana Moss had some solid years with the Redskins, but that feels like a lifetime ago.
