Casserly: Jeremy Maclin Top FA Receiver

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 12, 2014 – 5:19 pm



The former General Manager of the Washington Redskins thinks a Philadelphia Eagle is the “most enticing” free agent wide receiver.

In an NFL.com roundtable, Charley Casserly picked Jeremy Maclin as a player he’d target if he were still working an NFL personnel department.


Executive Vice President/General Manager has said the Redskins will be aggressive once free agency opens on March 11, but he has not said which positions the team will target.

Joshua Morgan wants to return to Washington, but he will be a free agent along with veteran Santana Moss. If the team decides to let them test the market, the Redskins could look to add depth to a receiver corps that includes a No. 1 option in Pierre Garçon,  a youngster on the mend in Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson, whom the team locked up last week, in the top spots. 

In his first four seasons, Maclin caught 26 touchdowns and averaged 863 yards receiving a year.

Also included in the discussion were Eric Decker from the Denver Broncos, Hakeem Nicks from the New York Giants, Julian Edelman from the New England Patriots, Anquan Boldin from the San Francisco 49ers, Golden Tate from the Seattle Seahawks and Riley Cooper, another receiver from Philly.

Who would you like to see in a Redskins uniform?

    As an avid FSU and Skins fan I would love to get Boldin. He catches almost everything thrown his way.

    Mr Sanders from the Steelers.

    I like Sanders, but in a pass first offense, his production wasn’t that much better than Moss and Morgan in 2012 when RG3 was healthy and sync with his wrs.

    Moss and Morgan have played in a run first offense and Morgan was out in the Shanahan dog house for no other reason than to see Hank play.

    I would love for us to add Maclin. Young,fast, productive, and he can stretch the field as well as add that big play threat our offense lacks. Paired with Garcon and Jordan Reed, that would be an explosive combinations of playmakers. I really hope we can make it happen.

    “BOLDIN” an “GARCON” what a awesome combination you can’t go wrong with those odds those two together will break records the dynamic duo!!!! I would love to see that

    Lately, I’m been leaning towards the Redskins just re-signing Morgan and Moss.

    Then, drafting someone to develop in round 4 or 5.

    The team needs to focus more of its finances on fixing the OL, DL, retaining tier best defensive players (Rak, Riley, Hall, Meriweather (moving him to SS), Jackson & Baker) then, signing a starting caliber ILB, and a starting caliber FS

    When Morgan started in 2012 and in SF (in run first offenses) he got 44-52 receptions, 510-698 YDs and 2 or 3 Tds.

    He was our leading receiver in 2012 when he played with two broken fingers and screws in his ankle. He’s as good a blocker – or better – than all our tight ends, which is crucial for what we do best… Run the ball!

    I’m starting to believe that the Shanahan’s put him in the dog for no other reason than they just wanted to give Hank more of a chance because Hank and Morgan were about equal, and Hank was their future.

    If Morgan is brought back, we know we have a tough, go over the middle possession WR and he shouldn’t cost more than a few million a year – perfect stop gap!

    Then we don’t have to overpay some own in free agency who may or may not be an upgrade – Nicks, Maclin, Austin & Alexander- health concerns, Sanders – consistency concerns, Decker and James Jones – too expensive for he #2 spot and Britt – health concerns, maturity concerns etc, etc, that boys got all kinda red flags!

    I know he can produce as he did in 2012 or really, honestly, I think he can do better than 48 recs, 510 YDs and 2 Tds.

    I think Morgan can give us 60 receptions, 700 YDs and 4 Tds.

    Maybe that’s just wishful thinking but these wrs can only go as far as the offensive line and RG3 go.

    If the OL can’t protect RG3 and RG3 isn’t more accurate, then the wrs aren’t going to catch over 50 balls (but Garçon & Reed) because they are RG3’s #1 and 2 targets on virtually every play.

    Look, we can get Morgan & Moss at a combined 4 or 5 million in salary next year instead of the 9 million we paid them in 2012 and 13.

    Morgan and Moss can combine for 90-100 catches, 1000 to 1100 YDs and 5 to 10 Tds for us next year if we make right side of our OL a lot better and RG3 gets totally comfortable and in sync with his wrs again this offseason.

    I’d rather see the Redskins spend 30 of their likely 40 million (after cutting Bowen & Carriker) on their Defense and right side of their OL, than to spend more than 5 million on a WR who honestly isn’t going to blow Morgan & Moss’ production out of the water.

    Eric Decker!! We need that big WR!! Eric Decker!!! All day!!! HTTR

    Is he really worth a Pierre Garçon type contract though?

    We don’t pass the ball that much, we run more than the Broncos.

    I don’t think he’s be worth the cost because he won’t have a Qb like Manning throwing him the ball.

    He’ll come into a run first offense.

    See what you saying. Guess I can’t argue with you either, you make great points. Think we do need a big WR to go with Garçon though. Our money could be used elsewhere, but man..would love to have Decker still. You right, he wouldn’t have Manning throwing to him, thought maybe he could help #10..
