NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers are "setting their sights" on free agent Pierre Garcon.
New coach Kyle Shanahan seems to be trying his best to make the 49ers a version of Redskins West. Working to acquire Kirk Cousins as his franchise quarterback, Shanahan could also be targeting Garcon and even DeSean Jackson as free agents. Garcon's first two seasons in D.C. were with Shanahan, and Garcon caught a career-high 113 balls in 2013 for 1,346 yards and five scores. If he lands in the Bay Area as Shanahan's starting "X" again, Garcon could be a top-20 fantasy receiver. Garcon turns 31 this year but looked to have plenty left in 2016.

Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan reports impending free agent Pierre Garcon requested a trade during the 2016 season.
The report was confirmed by ESPN's John Keim, who over the weekend wrote Garcon is "gone." The request along with the seeming lack of communication between the two sides over the last couple months suggests Keim is correct. The request also suggests the organizational dysfunction currently bubbling to the surface has been simmering behind the scenes for quite some time.

ESPN's Redskins reporter John Keim believes impending free agent Pierre Garcon is "gone."
It certainly seems that way after Garcon said he has "not heard anything at all" from the Redskins. Garcon led Washington in targets, catches, and yards in 2016. He is behind guys like Alshon Jeffery and former teammate DeSean Jackson, but Garcon should still see plenty of interest on the open market.
