Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss restructured his contract and saved the team $2 million in cap space.
Huddle Up: Moss finished second on the team with 41 catches for 573 yards this past season, but he will turn 34 in June and clearly is on the downside of his career as his receptions and yardage totals were his lowest single-season marks since 2002.

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss will count $6.3 million against the cap, which might be too much for the team considering the veteran will soon be 34 years old. Moss is still considered a player that can help, but he might need to restructure his contract to return.
Huddle Up: Moss is the veteran of the Skins' deep receiving corps and his leadership is valued -- just not at $6.3 mil pricetag. Look for the WR to be back with the team with a restructured deal.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss (concussion) has passed all concussion tests, freeing him to play in the Week 11 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Moss was getting on a roll with a combined 3 TD catches in Weeks 7 & 8 before getting hurt in Week 9. He's had an extra week with the bye to recover, so definitely plug him back into your lineup if you need to this week.

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss suffered a concussion in the Week 9 game against the Carolina Panthers, according to the team.
Huddle Up: The diagnosis puts Moss into the league's concussion program, where he'll need to pass a battery of tests to get back onto the field. After a mild midseason resurgence, this injury could spell the end of what little fantasy relevancy Moss was clinging to.

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss said his new role lining up in the slot in three-wide receiver formations has been working well to date. Moss has 10 catches for 97 yards and one touchdown in the first four games of the season. "I feel it's gone as good as it can go," Moss said. "I'm out there. I'm out there making plays ... Thus far, I've been handling it well."
Huddle Up: Moss used to have games with those stats, not months. His words say he's accepting the role, but he can't be particularly happy about it. Same for fantasy owners, though at least fantasy owners saw the stat decline due to his new role coming and planned accordingly.

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.
Huddle Up: Moss was about to be cut if the Redskins landed free-agent Eddie Royal (who chose San Diego over them at the last second) and now he's back in the mix for the No. 2 spot. Hankerson is still not fully recovered from February hip surgery. Morgan hasn't gone full speed yet either because of a broken leg sustained as a 49er last year.

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss has an early jump on the team's No. 2 wide receiver spot, and there also have been whispers he could compete with WR Pierre Garcon for the No. 1 role.
Huddle Up: Don't be too quick to write off Moss just because the Redskins added other wideouts this offseason, as it looks like he'll still have a prominent role in the offense. There's something to be said for a veteran receiver with good hands that a rookie quarterback can trust.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said several of his receivers will be working out with him in Waco in the next few weeks. Griffin mentioned WRs Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon, Anthony Armstrong, Aldrick Robinson and Brandon Banks and TE Fred Davis among the players that will be taking part in the workouts.
Huddle Up: Just three months ago the Washington media was sure that Moss would be released, but things have changed. With free-agent acquisition Josh Morgan (leg) and Leonard Hankerson (hip) reportedly healing slowly from last year's injuries, Moss is not only going to make the team -- but he might have a shot to start at age 33.
