Report: Santana Moss' contract voids this week
One of the real issues the Washington Redskins have had in helping their quarterbacks in recent seasons has been the spotty play they’ve had at wide receiver.
Santana Moss has been consistent but the offense has really struggled to find a reliable option opposite him and that’s contributed to bring everyone down. Now, the Redskins could face the task of having to replace Moss, who will be a free agent soon.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the contract for the 31-year-old Moss voids Friday meaning when the owners and players can hammer out their differences, he will be a free agent.
How valuable is Moss? That’s the question the Redskins and anyone else considering him will have to answer. He’s not the guy who caught 84 passes for 1,483 yards in 2005. But with the pressure on him to deliver last season, he caught a career-high 93 passes for 1,115 yards. It’s fair to say Moss is more of a possession guy now than a big-play threat, but he’s dependable and can help just about anyone. In the last nine seasons, he’s missed only six games. Washington will sure miss him if the Redskins can’t lure him back.
