Colts Free Agency: Pierre Garcon Reportedly Turned Down Contract Offer

The Indianapolis Colts have a handfull of free agents they'll want to keep, including both starting wide receivers Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon. In the middle of what looks like a total rebuild, however, it might be tough to keep both of these players. Garcon recently turned down a five-year, $35 million contract offer from the Colts, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

More on the report from Adam Schefter of ESPN.com that Indianapolis Colts receiver Pierre Garcon turned down a five year offer from the team. Word tonight is the value of the contract hovered around the $35 million mark.

Garcon was originally picked up by the Colts in the 2008 NFL Draft and finally seemed to have a break out year in 2011, with 70 receptions for 947 yards and six touchdown receptions. The whispers say Garcon does not want to stay in Indianapolis, but it's difficult to see a team willing to offer Garcon a contract similar to what he turned down.
