Redskins re-sign Santana Moss
By Dan Graziano
Adam Schefter reports via Twitter that the Redskins have agreed to terms with free-agent wide receiver Santana Moss. Adam tweets that it'll be a "3-yr deal for $15 million with $5 million signing bonus and $6 million guaranteed."
Makes sense. Moss wanted to stay and the Redskins wanted to keep him. What we don't know is whether this means the Redskins still plan to follow through on their plans to pursue Jets receivers Santonio Holmes and/or Braylon Edwards. The Star-Ledger is reporting that the Jets have already made an offer to Holmes, but the news of Washington's interest leaked out a few days ago, so Holmes knows he might get a big Dan Snyder offer to compete with whatever the Jets are offering.
The Redskins surely can use the help at receiver. John Beck and/or Rex Grossman is going to need all the help he can get as the starting quarterback this season. Holmes would be a clear No. 1 ahead of Moss and a major upgrade over what the Redskins had at the position last season. And Edwards would be the big-bodied downfield target that Anthony Armstrong kind of was and kind of wasn't last season.
