Pierre Garcon Contract With Redskins Is For 5 Years, $42.5 Million, According To Report

Pierre Garcon's contract details for his new deal with the Washington Redskins have come out, and the former Indianapolis Colts receiver is going to make a good amount of money. Garcon's contract is for five years and about $42.5 million, with $21.5 million guaranteed, according to Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com.

That would make Garcon a higher-paid player than several other top receivers on the market, including Marques Colston of the New Orleans Saints and Stevie Johnson of the Buffalo Bills. Colston received five years and $40 million to stay with the Saints with just under half of that guaranteed, while Johnson received a five-year, $36.25 million deal with $19.5 million guaranteed. It remains unclear how the contract is structured year-to-year or whether the team's salary-cap penalty imposed by the NFL had any effect on the deal.

Garcon caught a career-high 70 passes for 947 yards and six touchdowns for the Colts in his fourth season in the league last year.
