Redskins Free Agency: Allen Robinson, Sammy Watkins gone; Paul Richardson is Washington's top WR target

New, comments

WRs are getting deals and the Redskins are focused on Paul Richardson

NFL: Preseason-Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Albert WIlson is out...

Allen Robinson is out...

Sammy Watkins is out, and got PAID!

The Redskins are in the WR market, but weren't looking to pay top of the market prices. They sniffed around for the trade price on Jarvis Landry, but didn't bite. It was reported they had interest in Robinson, and possibly Watkins, but they got heavy interest and are both expected to get paid tomorrow.

The name that has been linked to the Redskins for weeks has been the Seahawks' Paul Richardson. The Redskins sorely missed DeSean Jackson's speed last season and Head Coach Jay Gruden has talked about adding some juice to the WR position. Richardson has the ability to make big plays, and would be a good player for new Redskins QB Alex Smith this season. The Redskins are also considering Donte Moncrief from the Colts.
