Skins talking to Pierre Garcon, Cowboys to meet with Brandon Carr

The Redskins are interested? I'm gonna get PAAAAID, son!

According to multiple reports, the Skins are talking to Pierre Garcon.  Here’s what I wrote about the Skins’ interest in Mario Manningham a couple weeks ago:

I kinda hate this idea for the Skins.  The Skins already have no shortage of “GOOD” receivers, but they don’t have that one stud.  Most teams have a stud WR.  Some teams have two.  The Skins have a bunch of good role players at WR and even a few starting quality types, but nothing that is going to make opposing defensive coordinators lose sleep.  In my opinion, if they’re going to address the position, they need that guy that can be the centerpiece, with the existing mix of polished vets (Santana Moss, Jabar Gaffney) and youth with upside (Leonard Hankerson, Niles Paul) as surrounding pieces.

Manningham would probably be the best WR on the Skins’ roster, but is he really that big an upgrade over Santana Moss and Jabar Gaffney?  I have my doubts, and one amazing catch in the Super Bowl isn’t enough to convince me that Manningham is a player opposing defenses are really going to fear, so why pay him like that kind of guy?  That’s assuming, of course, that Manningham is going to attract a significant chunk of cash.  That’s not to say I don’t like Manningham as a player.  I do.  But I like him as a role player, not my go-to guy.

If you’re going to make a big play for a WR, why not shoot for the moon for a guy like Vincent Jackson, or on a slightly lesser level, a guy like Marques Colston?  I just don’t see where Manningham is really that big an improvement over what’s already in place.

I pretty much feel the same way about Garcon, sans the Super Bowl heroics.

Also, per Adam Schefter, Brandon Carr will be visiting the Cowboys first.  Not surprise there, as the Cowboys are reportedly set to go “all in” for Carr.  Cornerback is an obvious hole in Dallas, especially now with the Cowboys cutting bait with the aging and declining Terence Newman.

Update: It appears Garcon signed with the Skins for about $8 million/year.  If so, that’s awful.  More on that as details emerge.

  2. I think what you published was actually very reasonable. But, consider this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean Skins talking to Pierre Garcon, Cowboys to meet with Brandon Carr – Blogging the bEast is a little plain. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post headlines to grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
