I wanted you all to hear it from me 1st before u saw it on the news," Garcon wrote on his Facebook account. "I will be signing with the Washington Redskins and I'm very excited about the opportunity in front of me.
"I want to thank all Colts fans from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support you've shown me the past 4 years and I hope that at some level u will still follow my career, as I will continue to share my life with you on here."
Garcon, 25, caught a career-high 70 passes for 947 yards and six touchdowns last season for the Colts despite Peyton Manning missing the entire season following neck surgery.

In return, the Dolphins will receive the Bears’ third-round draft picks in 2012 and 2013, as first reported by Fox's Jay Glazer.

Trading him frees up $11.3 million in cap space, leaving Miami $20 million under the cap. But it also creates a need for a No. 1 receiver.
