It’s safe to say the Washington Redskins are stocking up on receivers. As if Robert Griffin III didn’t already have enough weapons, Washington signed former New Orleans Saints receivers Donte Stallworth and Devery Henderson on Wednesday, giving the team 12 total receivers on its roster.
Now Heaven knows Pierre Garcon is safe, but Santana Moss and Josh Morgan now have even more competition for training camp and likely the preseason. The Redskins are clearly set on taking their offense to the next level in 2013, but now it seems like they’re just collecting all the free agent receivers they possibly can.
If you’re a conspiracy theorist, here’s one for you: the Redskins’ division rivals, the New York Giants, are having some trouble at receiver, so maybe they scooped up the best available on free agent market to keep the G-Men from adding insurance depth. Sound crazy? No way. That sounds exactly like something Redskins coach Mike Shanahan would do.
The one key for Washington will be the return of tight end Fred Davis, who missed most of the 2012 season with a torn Achilles tendon. With Davis healthy and a slew of receivers from which to choose, RG3 should have no problem building off his Rookie of the Year campaign.
