Report: 49ers looking to reunite Redskins' WR Garçon with Kyle Shanahan

Report: 49ers looking to reunite Redskins' WR Garçon with Kyle Shanahan

Pierre Garçon may be headed to the West Coast.

The free agent receiver is reportedly a target of the 49ers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. That would reunite him with Kyle Shanahan, who was the Redskins’ offensive coordinator when Garçon signed with the team as a free agent in 2012. With Shanahan calling the plays in 2013 Garçon caught a Redskins record 113 passes.

In his five season with the Redskins Garçon has caught 326 passes for 4,549 yards and 21 touchdowns. He has been a reliable target for both Kirk Cousins and, before him, Robert Griffin III. Garçon spend his first four seasons in the league with the Colts after they made him a sixth-round pick out of Mount Union.

The Redskins signed him to a five-year, $42 million contract on the first day of free agency in 2012. He collected on every dollar he signed for, a rarity in an era where veteran players are often released before collecting more than a fraction of what sound like big-money contracts.

What is somewhat curious here is that the 49ers do not have a quarterback on their roster. As in literally, not a single one. Would Garçon show interest in a team when he doesn’t know who will be throwing him the ball? Have the 49ers told Garçon of plans to bring in Kirk Cousins, the tagged quarterback who has been the subject of intense trade speculation recently?

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.

Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.

In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.

It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.
