Pierre Garcon Turned Down Five-Year Offer From Colts

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, wide receiver Pierre Garcon recently rejected a five-year contract extension offer from the Indianapolis Colts.

Pertinent financial details such as average per year and guaranteed money within the rejected Colts offer were not disclosed. Garcon will be an unrestricted free agent on March 13, though the Colts have the option of using the franchise tag on Garcon, which is projected to be worth around $9.44 million in 2012.

The 2008 sixth-round pick out of Mount Union caught a career-high 70 passes for 947 yards and equaled his career-high with six touchdown receptions. The 6-foot, 210-pound Garcon moved into the starting lineup in 2009 and has 188 receptions for 2,519 yards and 16 touchdowns in 58 career games.
