The Washington Redskins reached an agreement with wide receiver Joey Galloway on a one-year contract that will give the 37-year-old wide receiver a chance to play his 16th NFL season, according to a league source
Galloway will try to win a spot on the Redskins’ roster when Washington gathers for its next minicamp in two weekends. The Redskins have been looking for another veteran wide receiver, and they believe Galloway has the chance to provide them with some long plays.
Galloway caught seven passes for 67 yards and no touchdowns last season, averaging 9.6 yards per catch while playing for New England and Pittsburgh. The former Ohio State receiver has 689 catches for a 15.6 average during an NFL career that began in 1995, but he hasn’t had a TD catch since making six for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2007.
There will be some serious competition this training camp. Galloway once known for his blazing speed, would be adding veteran leadership to this squad. I look for Marko Mitchell to be competing for some time this season, and with the development of Devin Thomas perhaps Galloway would be competing for some time in the slot.
