More on wide receiver depth:
The wide receiving corps was revamped over the offseason with the additions of DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts in free agency, the re-signing of veteran Santana Moss and the selection of Ryan Grant in the draft.
Garcon set the franchise record for receptions in a single season in 2013 with 113 catches. His mark surpassed the likes of Art Monk, Gary Clark and Bobby Mitchell.
Jackson, who signed with the Redskins Apr. 1, was second in the NFL last season in 20-plus-yard receptions with 25. He enters 2014 with over 6,000 career receiving yards and 32 touchdowns.
Roberts comes to the Redskins after four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. During his tenure there, Roberts accumulated over 2,000 yards and hauled in 12 touchdown passes.
Over the last nine seasons, Moss has been one of the most consistent players in the NFL. Acquired via trade before the 2004 season, Moss ranks top-10 all-time in franchise receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Despite turning 35 recently, head coach Jay Gruden said he’s enjoyed the energy Moss brings to the team.
Hankerson and Robinson were both drafted in the 2011 NFL Draft. Providing different targets for Redskins quarterbacks, the duo has recorded 11 touchdowns.
Williams was a late season call-up for the Redskins last season after spending the majority of the season on the practice squad. He recorded three receptions and appeared in punt and kickoff return situations.
Grant was a star for Tulane over the last few seasons. During his Green Wave career, the 6-1 wideout appeared in 34 games where he recorded 196 receptions for 2,769 yards and 21 touchdowns.
