Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

Yes someone actually wants to be a Skin.

Santana Moss wants to be a Redskin DC Pro Sports Report

I'd welcome Santana back with open arms.

Can't wait to see him burn Rogers ring-of-horror style.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

I don't know. I like Moss but part of me would rather give the young guns a shot. Kelly, Armstrong, Hankerson, Austin, Aldridge, Paul, and even Banks. Then again lockout means less time for receivers to learn the system which puts a priority on veterans.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

I think at wide receiver, you need to have at least one reliable weapon. I love most of the rookies and young guys (I'm not wild on Kelly, but who knows, maybe he can shock the world and not pull a hamstring walking down the street), but you don't want to have a team with just young guys, especially not when the quarterback situation is in flux.

So bringing back Moss and at least having him might help guys like Hankerson and Armstrong have sucess and continue to have success, because you're not putting the weight of the world on their shoulders. We know he can still be productive, and plus, now the weight of the offense isn't all on HIS shoulders.

I think even the young football teams need to have vets in the mix.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

I absolutely want him back, but I'd also like to see us be able to develop other guys to be the 1 and 2, and ease Moss into more of a #3 slot position. He can still deliver though

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

I say definitely bring back Santana - a proven producer who can mentor the young bucks. Given the frequency of 3 wide sets, there should be time on the field to groom the youngsters, especially if Santana plays in the slot.

With the lockout playing the factor I say pick him up.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

I would keep Moss.
Way too much downside to let him escape.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

Bringing him back is a no brainer to me. He knows the system and is still a productive player. Get it done.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

I want him as a slot receiver...let him be our Wes Welker. As a #1 receiver, he doesn't cut it. They young guys need to get looks, especially Anthony and Austin.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

There's not much of a downside at all to keeping Moss around. He'd be one of the top 3 or 4 slot receivers in the game, he's still rabbit quick even if he doesn't have deep burner speed anymore. Hank and Armstrong on the outside, Moss on the inside would give us our best corp in a very long time.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

Moss brings it every night. He is a selfless player in an age of selfish players. Hail Santana!

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

My main concern is putting one or two of the three receivers we picked in the draft on our practice squad and loosing them before getting an idea of what we might have.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

I would keep him if the lockout drags on too long, which it probably will. And as long as its not too much money and any more than like a 2-3 year deal.

Re: Moss WANTS to be a Redskin

I say bring him back. He was content playing in the slot last year so that works with the young guys coming up. He's not a Top Tier #1 but the guy is F'n solid !

I think the roster for wide receivers probably will be Santana Moss, Armstrong, Hankerson, Niles Paul, Terrence Austin and Aldrick Robinson.

Roydell Williams is gone. I really think that, unless Malcolm Kelly has a phenomenal offseason, he'll be gone too, possibly even if he stays healthy. Mike likes his receivers to be able to play special teams as well, and Kelly's proven to fragile to do that. And with Niles Paul and Aldrick Robinson being able to return kicks, Banks is at a disadvantage unless he proves he can make a big time impact as a receiver.

It's more nerve racking to me that Armstrong could end up being our only "veteran" receiver. That's putting a lot of pressure on all the rookies to step up and play right away, and they'll be under an intense microscope. Shanahan likes his players to be versatile, which is why guys like Niles Paul and Aldrick have a pretty solid chance of making the team, where as some of the other guys have less of a chance.
