The Washington Redskins have been busy in free agency acquiring receivers. They started off re-signing WR Santana Moss to a three-year deal, then traded for WR Jabar Gaffney and agreed to terms with WR Brandon Stokley. That made 14 receivers on the roster, which seemed like a lot.
You can now strike that down to 13 receivers. According to Stokley's agent, he won't be signing in Washington citing "too many WR's signed."
So Stokley is apparently back on the market. This is a good lesson to remember while following these free agent signings -- they're not official until ink hits the paper which can't happen until Friday at 6:00 p.m. (ET). It's sort of like college recruiting in that players will verbally commit this week but deals don't become official until Friday night.
We'll see where Stokley goes next. He could be a decent third receiver if there aren't any other options but we're still early in this young free agency period with plenty of players available.
