In the last full calendar year, the Redskins have drafted, signed via free agency, or traded for 11 wide receivers

There are actually more, but let’s not count the undrafted free agent camp bodies that were never going to make the team.  Here they are:

Player Date How acquired
Leonard Hankerson 4/29/2011 3rd round draft pick
Niles Paul 4/30/2011 5th round draft pick
Aldrick Robinson 4/30/2011 6th round draft pick
Jabar Gaffney 7/27/2011 Acquired in trade for DT Jeremy Jarmon
Brandon Stokley 7/27/2011 Free agency, Stokley later rescinded the contract because he felt the Skins signed too many receivers already.
Santana Moss 7/29/2011 Free agency
Donte Stallworth 7/29/2011 Free agency
David Anderson 11/8/2011 Signed with Skins mid season after being cut by the Texans
Pierre Garcon 3/13/2012 Free agency
Josh Morgan 3/13/2012 Free agency
Eddie Royal 3/13/2012 Free agency

So… How many will they draft this year?

Update: It appears Eddie Royal may not have signed yet.

    I don’t have a problem with them bringing in multiple second tier receivers, rather than one big star.

    1) Moss started to decline two years ago, and started to look “old” last year.
    2) Gaffney has never relied on speed, so age is less of a barrier but he is still a 10+ year vet.
    3) For years all an opposing offense had to do was double or tripple cover Moss, then deal with Cooley and that was the entire threat from our passing game gone. Having a single, definitve number one receiver can make it very easy to take that player out of the game.

    With a rookie QB coming to town it might be better to upgrade the general level of the entire receiver corps, rather than bringing in a single “target” man.

    If our new QB struggles to make progressions during the first few years of his career, it might be easier to hide his first couple of reads if he is throwing to a bunch of good guys, rather one great receiver and bunch of second choices.

    1. CarverM says:

      Great point. There is also less pressure for him to feed balls (hehe) to “THE guy” than if there were several good receivers but not one that was obviously the alpha of the group. Could lead to fewer forced throws, which would be big for a rookie QB.

  23. WeNeedLinemen says:

    I am not liking the reported price for Garcon, but I do like the player. Yes he has had some drops, but he improved last year. He is young, fast and seems like a solid character. He fits in the same mold as last year’s free agent class, which worked out rather a lot better than I feared they might.

    The Joshua Morgan signing is easier to like because of how much it seems to be bugging 49ers fans. They wanted him back and are disappointed that he is gone. Even better, they still seem to be wishing him luck. Thats always a good sign of a player that gave his all for the team.

    I’d like to get Eddie Royal as well. Brandon Banks hasn’t been the same player since knee surgery mid-way through his rookie season. Plus it would be nice to have a return guy who can play a more significant role as a receiver.

    Weren’t Gafney and Royal on Shanahan’s team when he was the Coach of the Broncos? Surprised he didn’t try to trade for Cutler and Marshall while at it
