I’m not stupid; I know we won’t be able to afford Mike Wallace. Just hear me out for a second and let me go into my hypothetical rant.
Let’s say Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen decide to get rid of DeAngelo Hall’s contract so that will clear obvious cap space.
In addition to that, let’s release Josh Morgan. This isn’t a major indictment on Morgan either, but he’s never going to “wow” you with his performances. He hasn’t even topped 70 yards receiving in a game and only one touchdown catch on the season.
He’s like the Andrew Walter of the Redskins. (Walter is the complimentary receiver to Andre Johnson in Houston) Morgan is a blue collar type of receiver, who is a great downfield blocker and does all the little things.
If we can take Morgan off the books that will obviously clear more space for the front office to examine other possibilities.
The combination of Mike Wallace and Pierre Garcon split out wide with Robert Griffin III distributing them the ball is downright scary. At 26-years-old, Wallace is still in the prime of his career and gives the Redskins even more options vertically.
They could keep Santana Moss in limited duty where he has excelled this year and keep Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson for depth purposes.
I know this is a long shot, but if for some reason this can remain fiscally responsible how can the Redskins not entertain the idea?
Talented wide receivers like Wallace will be itching to play with a quarterback of Griffin’s caliber, where coming to DC can become more than just a payday.
