For those clamoring over the possibilities of stars like Peyton Manning or Mike Wallace heading to San Francisco this offseason, let me present you with a more reasonable alternative.

Pierre Garcon, anyone?

The 25-year-old wide receiver has improved considerably in each of his four NFL seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. He's played with one of the best quarterbacks of all-time (Manning) and was mentored by another Colts great, wide receiver Reggie Wayne.
