Pierre Garcon has announced via Facebook that he will be signing with the Washington Redskins.

What does this mean for the Redskins? Thankfully, it means that the news of the recent cap-room penalties the 'Skins have encountered has not deterred them from trying to surround Robert Griffin III (assuming, of course, they draft him) with the pieces he needs to succeed.

This is good news for everyone, because now Garcon will be best receiver on the team next to Santana Moss. In the event that the 'Skins take RG3 with the second overall pick, he will now have two potential all-pro receivers to throw too.

Garcon, who's played his entire career with the Indianapolis Colts, will now have to properly adjust to having a quarterback who is (presumably) less skilled than Peyton Manning. If he is able too, Garcon will have a bright future with the Redskin organization.

This news does not bode well for Indianapolis, now that their entire team is leaving via free agency. Rumors have it that Reggie Wayne will be leaving as well, and it is unfortunate because the Colts are not getting anything in return for all of this talent. Indy recently released tight end Dallas Clark as well.

Pierre Garcon is only 25 and has racked up 2,500 yards, 16 touchdowns and 188 receptions in his four-year career.

Garcon's contract is reportedly a five-year, $42.5 million deal, with $21.5 million guaranteed, according to the Washington Post.
