Redskins are reporting that they have resigned Adam Carriker to a multi-year deal and recently rumors have circulated about yet another wide receiver arriving in Washington.

This has been a whirlwind first two hours of free agency and the Redskins have reportedly signed their third wide receiver of the day. Former Denver Bronco and Alexandria, VA native Eddie Royal is slated to become the latest Washington Redskin. Royal is just 25 years old and will look to compete for a starting receiver position with new Redskins Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan. This story first broken by Grant Paulsen of WJFK 106.7 “The Fan” on twitter.
