The Washington Redskins may be in the sweepstakes for both Peyton Manning and Robert Griffin III at quarterback, but there is no greater need on their roster heading into the 2012 NFL season than at the wide receiver position. There is no better player to fill that hole on the free agent market than former New Orleans Saints superstar Marques Colston.
