The Redskins, looking to plug in another deep threat opposite Pierre Garcon, have made inquires into free agents Kenny Britt and Andrew Hawkins, according to the Washington Post.
Britt, who has had an injury prone five-year career, is coming off a season with the Tennessee Titans in which he had 11 catches for 96 yards in 12 games. Any team looking into Britt would hope he regains some of the potential he showed in his first two NFL seasons, when he had two consecutive seasons with more than 700 yards receiving.
Hawkins, who played for Jay Gruden in Cincinnati, is a restricted free agent who struggled with injuries last season, when he had 12 catches for 199 yards in eight games.
The Redskins have two free agents wide receivers they might have to replace in Josh Morgan and Santana Moss. Garcon has said he hopes Moss is able to return to Washington.
“"I would love him to come back," Garçon recently told ESPN 980. "He definitely helps me out with my game, and it helps everybody in the receiver room with a definite leader on our team. We would definitely love him to come back and definitely need him to come back to help our offense to move forward."Daugherty: From sweeping floors to the NFL, Bengals' Hawkins living dream
