2015 Redskins Season In Review: Wide Receivers

Take a quick look back at the top Redskins 2015 season storylines from the wide receiver position, courtesy of Redskins Public Relations.

The group led by Wide Receivers Coach Ike Hillard received a substantial boost in Week 9 when DeSean Jackson returned to the lineup after missing the majority of the first seven games of the season with hamstring injury he suffered in the early minutes of the season opener.

Jackson caught 30 passes for 528 yards with four receiving touchdowns in 2015, with all four displaying the Cal product’s trademark explosiveness. Jackson scored on touchdown passes of 77 yards (Week 15), 63 yards (Week 12), 56 yards (Week 11) and 28 yards (Week 13), the first three of which accounted for three of the five longest gains of the season for Washington.

Jackson’s counterpart, Pierre Garçon, led the receivers with 72 receptions for 777 yards and tied his career high with six receiving touchdowns. Now in his third season in Washington, Garçon surged down the stretch as the Redskins won four straight to take the NFC East title, catching a touchdown pass in each of the Redskins’ final three games of the season.

The Redskins selected Jamison Crowder in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft hoping to at least secure an impact returner. Crowder instead carved out a much larger role, earning the team’s slot receiver role and setting the team’s rookie record for receptions (59).

Crowder posted a career day in the team’s Week 17 finale at Dallas, catching the 28-yard pass on which Cousins broke the team’s single-season passing record in the midst of the first career 100-yard receiving day for the rookie.

The group also features a pair of second-year pass catchers who have contributed when called upon. Ryan Grant, a favorite of Gruden’s for his precise route running, posted career highs with 23 receptions for 268 yards with two receiving touchdowns. Rashad Ross made the team after leading the NFL in every major receiving category in the 2015 preseason. He scored on a reception (Week 17 at Dallas), a kickoff return (Week 3 at New York Giants) and a blocked punt recovery (Week 6 at New York Jets) in 2015.
