Arizona Cardinals: 5 NFC West stars to account for in 2017
Welcome 10-year veteran receiver Garcon to the NFC West. Garcon comes over to the division from the Washington Redskins. Last season Garcon caught 79 passes for 1,041-yards.
Garson adds some legitimacy to an oft-struggling 49ers offense. The issue could be with a quarterback getting him the ball.
If starting quarterback Bryan Hoyer is able to find Garcon with the same consistency that Kirk Cousins did in Washington or even Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, then NFC West defenses will have fits.
Garcon only made the end zone three times last season but is always a deep threat, even 10-years into his professional career. With the way the Cardinals defense gave up big pass plays last season, this should be a huge worry for them when they see the 49ers in 2017.
The good news is there is some drop off in talent after Garcon with the 49ers receivers. Garcon could be likely to see some double teams. If the Cardinals are smart enough to figure that out, then they will have a decent chance of containing him.
