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.

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.

Pierre Garcon caught 7-of-11 targets for 78 yards in the Redskins' Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

Garcon continues to provide a safe floor, catching the short-to-medium passes on the outside and turning them into 10-12 yards. He's a WR3 based on volume every week. Treat him as such in a Week 16 road date with the Bears.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 12:36:00 AM

Pierre Garcon caught 5-of-6 passes for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 14 win over the Eagles.

Garcon led the Redskins in targets, and has at least five catches in 5-of-6 games. He's producing as a consistent WR4. He has a plus Week 15 matchup in the Panthers.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 05:56:00 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 7-of-9 targets for 78 yards Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Garcon led the team in targets with Jordan Reed out and was the most consistent option. He was the only receiver to catch a pass in the first half, and he had a big 28-yard catch on the second touchdown drive. If Reed is out again against Philly, Garcon will be in play as a WR3.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 08:37:00 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 4-of-4 targets for 43 yards in the Redskins' Week 12 loss to the Cowboys.

Garcon did his usual thing; catching what was thrown to him, sometimes creating after the catch, and sometimes not. Week to week, he's a borderline WR3.
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 08:16:00 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 6-of-7 targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Packers.

Garcon got past the secondary for a 70-yard fourth-quarter TD. It's hard to have any strong takeaways with the Packers defense playing as bad as it is, but Garcon has at least seven targets and 60-plus yards in three straight games. He's on the WR3 radar for Week 12 against Dallas.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 01:03:00 AM

Pierre Garcon caught 6-of-10 targets for 81 yards in Washington's Week 10 win over Minnesota.

Garcon had an expanded role with DeSean Jackson sidelined. He led Washington in receiving and out-targeted Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed. With a plus Week 11 matchup with Green Bay's secondary, Garcon will be on the streaming radar if Jackson doesn't return.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 05:40:00 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 6-of-7 targets for 67 yards Week 8 against the Bengals.

Garcon had a couple big catches early including a 23-yard gain where he worked Dre Kirkpatrick. He also had a couple big catches in overtime that ultimately went for naught. Even with those plays, it was another middling performance from Garcon. He will not be worth using against the Vikings after the bye.
Sun, Oct 30, 2016 02:22:00 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 2-of-5 targets for 22 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.

With Kirk Cousins spreading the ball around against Detroit's porous defense, Garcon couldn't get any volume going. The yards were his fewest of the season. Garcon is averaging 4.2 catches, but it's not translating to consistent WR4 value in standard leagues. He's a low-upside own.
