The Washington Redskins added another big-bodied wide receiver target on Friday for quarterback Kirk Cousins, as the team signed 6-3, 220 pound Brian Quick. The Redskins have been in the market for another receiver since they lost two starters, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, on day one of Free Agency. Quick is the second receiver the Redskins have signed in this year, joining Terrelle Pryor, who signed a one-year contract earlier this month.

After being selected in the second round of the 2012 draft out of Appalachian State, the pressure was on to produce immediately with the Rams for Quick.

The team expected big things from him even though they didn't have a franchise quarterback to throw him the ball.

Disappointing start to his career

In only 24 career starts out of a possible 67 games, with less than average quarterbacks, Quick has pulled in 105 receptions, for 1499 yards and ten touchdowns , but he only hauls in 51 percent of the passes thrown his way.

Brian Quick seemed destined to break-out in 2014, but suffered a massive shoulder injury that almost ended his career after having a hot start to the season with 21 catches, for 322 yards in the first four games. 2016 was Quick’s best year as a receiver as he grabbed 41 catches, for 564 yards and three touchdowns in just eight starts for the league’s 3rd worst offense with a rookie quarterback.

In a situation where he isn't pushed to be the number one target, Quick could excel in Washington without the pressure that loomed over him with the Rams.

Completely different targets on offense for Washington in 2017

Last year the Redskins were a team with small, speedy receivers.

The team drafted (6-2) Josh Doctson making him the tallest member of the receiving core, but he only played in a couple of games. The team went with a lineup of 6 foot Pierre Garcon, (5-10) DeSean Jackson and (5-9) Jamison Crowder. The 2017 unit features (6-4) Terrelle Pryor, (6-3) Quick, (6-2) Doctson and (5-9) Crowder to go with (6-2) Jordan Reed and (6-3) Vernon Davis at tight end.

With that kind of length at receiver, the Redskins should be able to improve their redzone issues from last year when they were among the league worst.
