49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Pierre Garcon's leadership is one of the reasons he wanted to sign him.
Shanahan said everyone can see Garcon is a good player, but his effort and how that affects the rest of the roster makes him even better. "Pierre's not going to say much, but you know he's going to go out there and fight every single play no matter the situation," Shanahan said. "That elevates everyone around him." Considering the state of the roster after two dreadful seasons in a row, that kind of leadership will be valuable. Garcon also has target monster potential in San Francisco. Apr 6 - 9:32 AM

49ers agreed to terms with Pierre Garcon, formerly of the Redskins, on a five-year, $47.5-million contract with $17 million fully guaranteed.

While it is being reported as a "five-year deal," the contract is really a two-year agreement with options the final three seasons. Still, it is a lot of money for a 30-year-old receiver, but Garcon's game should age well and he has a history of success in new coach Kyle Shanahan's offense -- he caught 113 passes while the pair were together with the Redskins in 2013. If the 49ers figure out the quarterback situation, Garcon could be a top-20 fantasy receiver in 2017.
Mar 9 - 12:19 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers are "setting their sights" on free agent Pierre Garcon.

Kyle Shanahan is trying his best to make the 49ers a version of Redskins West. Working to acquire Kirk Cousins as his franchise quarterback, Shanahan could also be targeting Garcon and even DeSean Jackson as free agents. Garcon's first two seasons in D.C. were with Shanahan, and Garcon caught a career-high 113 balls in 2013 for 1,346 yards and five scores. If he lands in the Bay Area as Shanahan's starting "X" again, Garcon could be a top-20 fantasy receiver. Garcon turns 31 this year but looked to have plenty left in 2016.
Mar 8 - 8:27 AM

Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan reports impending free agent Pierre Garcon requested a trade during the 2016 season.

The report was confirmed by ESPN's John Keim, who over the weekend wrote Garcon is "gone." The request along with the seeming lack of communication between the two sides over the last couple months suggests Keim is correct. The request also suggests the organizational dysfunction currently bubbling to the surface has been simmering behind the scenes for quite some time.

ESPN's Redskins reporter John Keim believes impending free agent Pierre Garcon is "gone."

It certainly seems that way after Garcon said he has "not heard anything at all" from the Redskins. Garcon led Washington in targets, catches, and yards in 2016. He is behind guys like Alshon Jeffery and former teammate DeSean Jackson, but Garcon should still see plenty of interest on the open market.

Impending free agent Pierre Garcon confirmed he hasn't heard anything from the Redskins this offseason.

"I have not heard anything at all," Garcon said. "But everybody does strategic moves right before free agency, or right during free agency, so I couldn’t tell you what they’re up to." Garcon led the Redskins in receiving yards and catches last season. With Garcon and DeSean Jackson both likely to move on, 2016 first-round pick Josh Doctson could play a huge role in the Redskins' passing game if he can get and stay healthy.
Mar 3 - 2:39 PM

ESPN's John Keim reports the Redskins still have not spoken with impending free agent Pierre Garcon.

Keim has "long doubted" Garcon will return, and the situation in trending in that direction. If talks are going to happen, they likely will be this week at the Combine, but that is cutting it close with the legal tampering period set to open next week. The Redskins look likely to lose both Garcon and DeSean Jackson.
Mar 2 - 8:35 AM

The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers "would not be surprised" if the Cardinals showed interest in free agent Pierre Garcon.

Larry Fitzgerald is on his last legs in the desert, though he is still playing at a high level. Michael Floyd has been let go, while John Brown couldn't get his hamstrings right last season due to sickle-cell issues. Jaron Brown tore his ACL. A once-promising receiving corps now needs an injection of talent. Garcon is expected to command $9 million per year.
Feb 22 - 2:09 PM

Free agent Pierre Garcon is expected to command $9 million annually.

It’s a slight increase from the $8 million Garcon made last year. The Redskins haven’t ruled out bringing back Garcon, but interest from multiple teams should price him out of Washington. DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, and Kenny Stills are also in line for big-money deals this offseason.

Feb 11 - 7:11 PM

The Washington Post reports the Rams, Eagles, Bears, Cowboys and 49ers are all expected to have varying degrees of interest in free agent Pierre Garcon.

Coming off the second 1,000-yard season of his career, Garcon has said he wants to remain in Washington, but he could quickly get priced out of their range in free agency. Going on 31, Garcon is durable, consistent and sure-handed. He'd be reuniting with Sean McVay in Los Angeles.
Feb 9 - 5:13 PM

Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan reports the Redskins have yet to open contract talks with impending free agent Pierre Garcon.

Washington has also not spoken with DeSean Jackson about a new deal since the end of the season, increasing the likelihood both receivers bolt in free agency. Still, negotiations usually do not kick into high gear until the Combine, so the Redskins have time to work out a deal with either Garcon or Jackson if they so choose. It still seems unlikely Washington lets both veterans walk, especially considering 2016 first-round pick Josh Doctson's health remains in question.

Feb 7 - 10:18 AM

Speaking Tuesday, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome admitted the team could sign a veteran receiver this offseason.

Newsome said he'll be in the market for "complementary receivers" following Steve Smith Sr.'s retirement. Pierre Garcon or Kenny Britt would fit the bill in free agency, as would older options Anquan Boldin and Vincent Jackson. The Ravens have a lot of bodies at wideout, but no proven depth behind Mike Wallace.
Jan 10 - 7:08 PM

ESPN's John Keim reports there is a "solid chance" impending free agent Pierre Garcon is not back with the Redskins next season.

Keim reports Garcon will not return for less than the $7.6 million he earned this season, a number he may be able to command on the open market after putting up a 79/1,041/3 line in his contract year. With DeSean Jackson also heading to free agency, the Redskins could look a lot different on offense next season even if (when) Kirk Cousins is retained. 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder are solid buys in Dynasty formats.

Pierre Garcon caught 4-of-6 targets for 96 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Giants.

Finishing out his five-year, $42.5 million contract — a shocking deal when it was handed out in March 2012 — Garcon heads back to free agency the owner of a 79/1,041/3 line. The 1K campaign is just the second of his career. Although he'll be 31 in 2017, Garcon has proven extremely durable, appearing in every game each of the past four seasons. He's a strong pair of hands who still has a little play-making ability left. He's probably moving on from Washington.
Jan 1 - 8:10 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 4-of-5 targets for 94 yards in the Redskins' Week 16 win over the Bears.

Garcon caught three passes for 87 yards in the first half, as the Redskins didn't have to throw after the break as they held three-score leads. Garcon's longest catch was a roasting of LCB Tracy Porter down the right sideline for 46 yards. Garcon has topped 65 yards and/or scored a touchdown in seven of the past eight games. He's provided solid WR3 numbers all year heading into the Week 17 finale at home against the Giants. Garcon went 5-59 against New York in Week 3.
