Pierre Garcon said no thanks to the Colts 5 year contract offer, although the terms of the contract were not disclosed.  Garcon is scheduled to hit free agency next month and must believe another team will be willing to pay him #1 WR money.

Garcon has been wildly inconsistent throughout his career and although he had a good statistical season in 2011, his numbers were inflated by 3 huge games.  In those three games Garcon scored all 6 of his TDs and 431 of his 947 yards came in the same three games.

Garcon is a poor route runner and drops too many passes to considered a #1 WR on a NFL team and he can’t be expecting to be paid like one.
