Redskins, Morgan agree to two-year deal

The Redskins are making significant moves to upgrade at wide receiver on the first day of free agency.

The Redskins have agreed to terms with WR Josh Morgan on a two-year deal worth more than $6 million per season.

Morgan only played in five games last season, catching 15 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown, but has good speed and size (6-foot-1, 215 pounds) and could put up big numbers playing in Mike Shanahan’s offense.

Morgan is still just 26 years old and drew a lot of interest. The Redskins want to acquire three receivers. With fellow free agent WR Pierre Garcon announcing his intent to sign with the Redskins, the team has already added two to work with Robert Griffin III, expected to be their choice with the second overall pick in the NFL Draft.
