Need to Know: The Redskins’ top five receivers since 2010

Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, February 9, 10 days before the NFL Combine.

Nickel coverage

Here are the Redskins’ five leading receivers since the 2010 season (in terms of yards receiving):

1. Santana Moss 2,724—You likely could grab any four-year span since Moss came to the Redskins in 2005 and Moss would be the leader. The Redskins started contract talks with the free agent to be but it remains to be seen if he will be back in 2014.

2. Pierre Garçon 1,979—After his injury plagued 2012 season we were wondering what he could do if he played a full season. We found out last year.

3. Fred Davis 1,507—In 2010 Chris Cooley got most of the tight end passes, his 2011 and 2012 seasons ended early due to a drug suspension and an Achilles injury, respectively, and he found himself inactive for a good chunk of last year. It’s more about what could have been with Davis than about what he actually accomplished.

4. Leonard Hankerson 1,081—Three seasons, two of them cut short by injuries have been the story here. He has one year left on his rookie contract and he’ll have to show that he can stay of the field if he wants to stay around.

5. Anthony Armstrong 974—I bet you wouldn’t have guessed this one even if you’d been given several tries. He’s the only one on this list who caught the majority of his passes from Donovan McNabb. After catching 44 passes for 871 yards as a 27-year-old rookie in 2010, he practically disappeared the next year with just seven catches. He was released in the final cuts in 2012.

      Welcome to the site. You really think Moss and, especially, Davis will be back?

        Moss if its for the Vet minimum or slightly above it I dont mind him coming back as a 4th WR/Slot guy.
        Davis wont be back, such a shame that he handled his situation so badly.
        I remember loving Armstrong in 2010, never understood what happened after …

    Obviously, they have no #1 receiver, or first round pick. and the best free agents are Decker, Maclin, Nicks, Tate. Looks like another year without a #1 receiver for the skins. Archives
