  Redskins | Not interested in Santana Moss    Wed Jul 22, 02:34 PM

Free-agent WR Santana Moss (Redskins) is not a player the Washington Redskins are interested in re-signing at this time. The team could pursue him if one of their veteran wide receivers suffers an injury.

Footballguys view: After catching 42 passes in 2013, Moss only hauled in 10 grabs last year. He's not the same player he used to be, but there might be some team interested in adding him as veteran depth.

  NFL | Santana Moss not ready to retire    Fri May 15, 07:07 PM

Free-agent WR Santana Moss (Redskins) is not ready to hang up his cleats and retire this offseason. 'I'm a free agent right now, you know how they do us old guys,' Moss said. 'I'm going on my 15th year. Right now my agent is talking with some teams to see what's going to be my best scenario. Right now I'm just chilling, just enjoying life, and enjoying this off time.' The Washington Redskins are unlikely to re-sign him, though, after drafting two wide receivers late in this year's draft.

  Redskins | Santana Moss could return    Fri Mar 27, 03:55 PM

Free-agent WR Santana Moss (Redskins) could re-sign with the Washington Redskins this offseason, but the two sides have not had a lot of talks to this point. The team likely will see what happens during the draft before making a decision on Moss.

Footballguys view: Nothing to see here for fantasy owners...even in the deepest of dynasty leagues. It's a fantastic WR class, so Washington could address the position with a better (and younger) option in the draft.

  Redskins | Santana Moss wants to continue playing    Tue Dec 30, 05:38 AM

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss, who does not have a contract for 2015, wants to continue playing and would prefer to stick with the Redskins.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Washington wants Moss back. The veteran receiver appeared in only nine games this year, finished 2014 with 10 catches for 116 yards. We doubt he comes back, and there's probably not a lot of teams lined up for his services at this point in his career.

  Redskins | Leonard Hankerson to PUP?    Thu Aug 14, 06:46 PM

Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) may be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden added the team may keep WR Santana Moss for the first few weeks of the season while Hankerson would be on the PUP list.

Footballguys view: Hankerson has been useless both as a fantasy and an NFL receiver so far and whether he is on the PUP or on the field he isn't worth anything to your fantasy roster.

Updating earlier reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) could play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 7, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Among the players that will take part in the workouts include RBs Alfred Morris, Evan Royster and Chris Thompson, WRs Pierre Garcon, Aldrick Robinson, Santana Moss, Andre Roberts and David Gettis and TE Jordan Reed.

Footballguys view: Griffin has to bounce back this year after a disappointing sophomore season. It's good that he's taking this offseason to show leadership skills. He could have a fine year under new head coach Jay Gruden.

  Browns | Santana Moss could be option    Mon Feb 10, 02:17 PM

The Cleveland Browns could show interest in Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Santana Moss, because they will be looking for a slot receiver and Moss played for offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

Footballguys view: Moss could give any team quality veteran depth at the wide receiver position. If he leaves Washington, then Cleveland is a likely destination.

  Redskins | Santana Moss may not be back    Sat Feb 1, 11:23 AM

The Washington Redskins may not re-sign impending free-agent WR Santana Moss this offseason because he is 34 years old, and the team is looking for an upgrade at the position. Moss could return if the team is not able to find an upgrade.

Footballguys view: Moss has given the team quality veteran depth for years. We feel the team is going to move in several different directions this offseason. Upgrading the wide receiver corps is tops on their list.

  Redskins | Santana Moss disagrees with Robert Griffin    Tue Nov 19, 11:32 PM

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss took exception to comments made by QB Robert Griffin III about the final play of the Week 11 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, and his failure to take responsibility. 'As a leader, you understand that if you're involved in the situation, whether you're the receiver, the quarterback, the guys making the tackle, whoever. Regardless of the outcome, good or bad, you have to at some point, stand up and say me or I,' Moss said in a radio interview Tuesday, Nov. 19.

Footballguys view: Griffin's comments were a bit passive/aggressive as he took veiled shots at the coaching staff and his wide receivers. He should spend time looking in the mirror and cleaning up his off target passes.

The Washingotn Redskins have their top four receiver spots set with WRs Pierre Garcon, Joshua Morgan, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson at the top of the depth chart. That leaves WR Donte' Stallworth (hamstring) and WR Aldrick Robinson battling for scraps as the fifth, and possibly sixth, wide receivers. Stallworth has fallen behind some due to a hamstring injury suffered Friday, July 26. WRs Devery Henderson and Dezmon Briscoe are also in the mix for jobs.

  Redskins | Aldrick Robinson standing out    Thu May 30, 01:32 PM

Washington Redskins WR Aldrick Robinson has had 'one heck of a camp,' head coach Mike Shanahan said.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a quick player who can break ankles in the open field. We'll see if he can carve out a role with this team as a slot or subpackage WR in 2013.

  Redskins | Santana Moss restructures    Tue Mar 12, 11:02 AM

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss restructured his contract and saved the team $2 million in cap space.

Footballguys view: Moss gets to stay with the team after restructuring his deal. The veteran WR is valuable to the Redskins but at this point in his career he's nothing more than a solid WR4 for your fantasy team.

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss' salary will jump from $2.65 million to $4.15 million next season, making him among the team's five highest base salaries.

Footballguys view: Moss would likely have to renegotiate his deal if he wants to stick around in 2013. We don't see that as being a problem for the veteran WR.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon has been the team's leading target receiver, despite which quarterback was in the game. QB Kirk Cousins targeted Garcon 12 times in Week 15, while WR Santana Moss had six targets.

  Redskins | Santana Moss finds end zone    Sun Oct 28, 04:18 PM

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss had four catches for just 21 yards in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he was able to score a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Moss seems to be prominent in Robert Griffin III's mind when he's in the opponent's end of the field, so he might be the most valuable Redskins receiver to own until Pierre Garcon comes back. He's still only an end of the bench emergency option, but Moss hasn't lost that much in his 30's.

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan says WR Santana Moss has been amazing in a reduced role and still has been productive. "He has a lot more football left," Shanahan said.

Footballguys view: He gets high marks from the coaching staff, but not from fantasy owners. Even with Pierre Garcon limited by injury this year we haven't seen much from Moss. Feel free to let him go if you're still holding onto him.

Washington Redskins WR Brandon Banks will serve as the team's top kick and punt returner heading into Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints. TE Niles Paul is listed as the backup on kickoffs, while WR Santana Moss is the backup on punts.

Footballguys view: Banks is small but packs a punch as a return man. He can change direction quickly and has good burst in and out of his breaks. Banks isn't much of a fantasy factor as he'll get little work as a receiver.

  Redskins | Three receivers seeing extensive work    Tue Aug 7, 03:04 AM

Washington Redskins WRs Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson have all put up solid showings in training camp and all three of them have had the most extensive playing time with the first-string offense.

Footballguys view: Garçon will be the team's primary deep threat and should be able to make the most of Robert Griffin III strong arm. Moss should catch a ton of passes on underneath passes while Hankerson's size makes him a good red zone target.

  Redskins | Santana Moss has dropped weight     Thu Aug 2, 11:37 AM

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss has dropped 16 pounds since last season and said he feels completely different. The coaches called Moss in the offseason and told him they thought he was too big, so he got in shape and has come to camp determined to prove he's still a top receiver in the league.

Footballguys view: Moss will probably only play in the slot, but he could still become one of Robert Griffin III's favorite receivers with his veteran savvy and toughness. If he looks good in the preseason, consider throwing a late pick at him in PPR leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is penciled in as a starter on one side, but WRs Leonard Hankerson, Joshua Morgan and Santana Moss will be competing for snaps on the other side.

Footballguys view: Moss seemed to take the message of his roster spot being in jeopardy to heart, losing 15 pounds and regaining his past form in the offseason. With Hankerson and Morgan both coming back from serious injuries, Moss is worth a look in the late rounds.
