The Redskins are wasting no time getting Robert Griffin III some targets. Joshua Morgan, DC Native and former Virginia Tech Wide Receiver is Washington’s newest addition.
The Redskins have now added two former 6th round picks in Morgan and Garcon. Joshua Morgan spent the first 4 years of his career with the San Fransico 49ers, and never had a 60 + catch season. However, let’s put things in perspective here – he did not have a good Quarterback situation and wasn’t used effectively.
In 2011, he was on the verge of having a breakout year that ended early due to a season ending injury. Like Garcon, Josh Morgan is a guy that makes plays, with a yards after catch career average of 5.7 yards. Not to mention, he’s only 26, so the infusion of youth is ongoing. Yes, he’s only had 131 career catches, but his ability to gain yards after the catch, addresses a need.
He’s a hard working, good character guy, with a ton of upside. At 6ft 1, 215 lbs, he has an underrated skill-set. Deceptive speed and strength. He’s a guy that’s not afraid to get physical.
I’m starting to believe Mike and Kyle Shanahan want to spread the field with 4 to 5 Receiver sets. The addition of Garcon and Morgan allows the Redskins to spread the ball around, which Robert Griffin III does best.
