Pierre Garcon Uses Twitter And Facebook To Announce He Is Signing With Redskins UPDATE

Apparently, catching passes from Andrew Luck isn't something that interested Colts free agent wide receiver Pierre Garçon. He'd rather catch balls from Robert Griffin III.

Per Garçon's Twitter handle and Facebook page, the fifth year veteran will be signing with the Washington Redskins.

It was reported back on February 24th that Garçon turned down a five-year deal to stay with the Colts.

Garçon is the first Colts player to leave via free agency at the start of the 2012 league year. He was drafted out of Division III Mount Union, and had a breakout year in 2009, the year the Colts played in Super Bowl XLIV.

Last week is was announced that the Redskins and Rams had agreed on a trade that sent the No. 2 overall pick in 2012 to Washington. Washington reportedly intends to use that pick to draft Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.

[UPDATE]:

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports that Garçon's new deal with Washington is five years, $42.5 million with $21.5 mill guaranteed.
