Pierre Garcon's Future Up in the Air

Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is a free agent. Here are the odds on where he plays in 2017.



That was an Instagram post from Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon last week.

An unrestricted free agent, Garcon spent the last five seasons in DC.

Garcon had 79 catches and three scores last season while topping 1,000 yards for the second time in his career.

You may not know this, but Garcon is the Washington Redskins record-holder for catches in a season with 113 in 2013. As such, he's etched his name into the NFL record books already.

Now, he's an unrestricted free agent.


With the Redskins likely losing WR DeSean Jackson in free agency, Garcon could get a new deal with the team.

"A return for Garcon can't be ruled out," CBS Sports' Will Brinson said, "should the market prove to be slow-moving for wideouts."

According to BookMaker.eu, Garcon is +175 to be with the Redskins next season, meaning you'd need to wager $100 to win $175. Those are the best odds of any individual NFL team.

Here are the other teams the market-setting sportsbook views as contenders to land Garcon when free agency opens:


Former Redskins OC Sean McVay is the new head honcho in LA, so Garcon heading to the West Coast makes a lot of sense. Rams WR Kenny Britt is a free agent and the team has little going on at wide receiver.


The 49ers are another team with ties to Garcon. New head coach Kyle Shanahan coached a career season out of Garcon in 2013. "The Waiter" had 113 catches for over 1,300 years that season, a Redskins' franchise record for receptions. At +750, this seems like good value.


The Eagles have been linked to just about every free agent wide receiver. A vet with reliable hands like Garcon could aid the development of Eagles QB Carson Wentz.

FIELD: -200

Here's the catch. The "field" -- any team besides the Redskins, Rams, 49ers, and Eagles -- is a strong -200 favorite to sign Garcon. For example, teams like the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals could certainly use a veteran receiver.

Garcon's future is truly up in the air.

From BookMaker.eu: Pierre Garcon team in Week 1 of 2017-18 regular season:

  • Washington Redskins +175
  • Los Angeles Rams +375
