The Redskins don't need a big name WR. We got one with Pierre Garcon. Josh Morgan is a solid fill in. Hankerson is maturing and Aldrick Robinson is developing nicely. We have who we need at the WR position. Maybe for depth purposes we can always draft a prospect in the mid to later rounds of the draft and develop them.
Larry Fitzgerald just signed a $120 million contract extension in 2011. The Redskins are being penalized $18M in the 2013 salary cap and have traded away their next 2 first round picks for RG3.
Pray tell, where would the Redskins acquire the resources to make such a trade?
I would sign Amendola for the mere fact that we wouldn't have to face him again.
The offense is 5th in yards and 7th in scoring.
That's without Fred Davis and without Garcon for the bulk of the season.
Freee Agency budget has limits.
I'll pass on a 'big name' WR.
on that list I see josh cribbs helping this team special teams,slot wr,rb in pistol...cribbs can do a lot with Rg3,butler,garcon that's alotta YAC!

The first problem is actually having a good WR available. Last year was the abberation. Finding a player even as good as Garcon is not common. It's quite likely that there will be very slim pickings available. The three best that may be available are likely to be Greg Jennings, Wes Welker, and Dwayne Bowe.
Jennings - if he does not re-sign with Green Bay before free agency, the Pack will not franchise him (partly due to great depth at the position) and he can test the waters. A good receiver, but aging and somewhat injury prone.
Welker - negotiations with New England have gone nowhere. It does not seem like the team wants to commit long-term to Welker after ignoring him and re-signing Gronk and Hernandez to large extensions. The fact New England, one of the league's smartest teams, is willing to let him walk is a red flag. Also, there's a growing concern that Welker is more a product of his environment than a true difference maker. He's got some skills, but may not be nearly as good on anyone else as he is on New England.
Bowe - by far the most attractive option due to age, size, and durability. He was franchised last year, making a second franchise tag this offseason less likely (but still possible). The Chiefs are a mess this year, so there's also the possibility they just clean the entire slate.
My thoughts? Unless there's a shot at Bowe, I'd pass.
As others have said we have much bigger needs at RT, safety and corner than we have at WR. We have pretty limited cap space available and it needs to be focused on these areas not receiver.
We have an interesting decision to make on Fred Davis. If he is healthy I think we bring him back but getting a contract agreed which suits him and the team might be difficult. A pass catching TE who is athletic enough to create match up problems would really help make our offense even more difficult to defend.
Would love to steal Cruz away from the Gnats. But it aint gonna happen.
