This weekend, well outside the spotlight’s glare and with nothing at stake, the Washington QB Robert Griffin III and WR Pierre Garcon resumed their collaboration at the Redskins’ training camp in Richmond, where Garcon rejoined practice after sitting out nearly two weeks with a strained hamstring.
They started by casually tossing a football back and forth before practice began in earnest, while their teammates stretched. And their rapport was soon evident, with Griffin and Garcon connecting on a touchdown throw during 11-on-11 drills.
“P’s a weapon,” Griffin said of Garcon afterward. “He’s a physical receiver. It’s good to have him out there. He brings a different mindset to the game and to the practice field, and we need him.”
Garcon is a welcome addition back to camp after leading the league in targets last year. He's one of a big-three with WR DeSean Jackson and TE Jordan Reed who should see a ton of work this year for the Redskins. Garcon is a very solid WR2 candidate this season.
