Redskins agree to terms with former Rams wide receiver Brian Quick

The Redskins agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Brian Quick. 

Quick has spent his entire five-year NFL career with the Rams franchise, moving with the team from St. Louis to Los Angeles last season. A second-round pick in 2012 out of Appalachian State, Quick's best season came last year when he caught 41 passes for 564 yards and three touchdowns. 

In five seasons, Quick has started 24 games and racked up nearly 1,500 receiving yards on 105 catches and 14 TDs.

The Redskins lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon earlier this offseason to free agency, and those departures leave a big hole in the Washington offense. Jackson and Garçon accounted for more than 40 percent of Kirk Cousins' passing yards in 2016.

Quick's arrival will not offset those losses, but he does continue a trend for Washington this offseason: big receivers. The 'Skins signed Terrelle Pryor earlier in free agency. Pryor goes 6-foot-6. Quick is listed at 6-foot-3. Remember, Josh Doctson should be healthy this fall, and he runs 6-foot-2. 

Of the departed wideouts, Garçon was taller, still just 6-foot. Jackson was generously listed at 5-foot-10.
