"That's our goal -- to unseat (Jeffery and Marshall)," Garcon said. "But I guess last year their stats were the top two receivers on the same team -- to be up there in the top 10 category for catches and yards or however they play it out. They are two good receivers, but we'll be up there next year fighting for that position."
While Jeffery and Marshall paired for a whopping 189 catches and 2,716 yards last season, Garcon's claims are far from nonsensical.
After all, he led all NFL receivers with 113 grabs while Jackson shattered his own career marks for catches (82) and yardage (1,332) in Chip Kelly's high-octane attack.
With Comeback Player of the Year candidate Robert Griffin III throwing the ball to a group that also includes Andre Roberts and ascendant tight end Jordan Reed, opposing defenses will have their hands full come September.
"It's hard to find a more complete receiving corps in the NFL," wrote NFL Media's Bucky Brooks, who ranked Washington above the Bears, Broncos, 49ers and Colts.
It's worth noting that Jay Gruden never had a No. 2 receiver catch more than 64 passes or 737 yards in Cincinnati, but much of the coach's time there was spent without a bona fide second fiddle to A.J. Green.
With Pierre and DeSean waiting in the wings, Gruden's luck is bound to change in 2014.
