Redskins sign 49ers WR Josh Morgan [updated]

The Washington Redskins have signed their third wide receiver in three hours of free agency, agreeing to a deal with former 49ers wideout Josh Morgan, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said Tuesday evening.

Morgan agreed to a five-year contract. The deal could convert to a two-year deal worth up to $12 million, including $7.5 million in guaranteed money, the person said.

The Washington Redskins are in negotiations with free agent wide receiver Josh Morgan, a person familiar with the talks said.

Morgan, a D.C. native who played at H.D. Woodson High and Virginia Tech, played his first four seasons for the San Francisco 49ers.

He had only 15 catches in five games last season but totaled 96 catches over two seasons in 2009 and 2010.

The Redskins, who already have reached a contract agreement with free agent wideouts Pierre Garcon and Eddie Royal, have wasted no time on the opening day of free agency in fulfilling their goal of remaking their wide receiver corps.
