Redskins re-sign Santana Moss: End the WR hunt there, Skins.

3 years, $15 million

After contributing virtually no news whatsoever all day, the Redskins finally chipped in by re-signing Santana Moss. Moss quietly had a really good year last year, catching 93 passes for 1,115 yards and 6 TD’s.  When the discussion of NFC East wide receivers ever comes up, the Redskins are regarded as something of a red headed step child (apologies to my ginger wife if you read this) in comparison to the Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants.  But they’re building a nice group of receivers in their own right with the veteran Moss, up-and-comer Anthony Armstrong, x-factor type Brandon Banks, and the 3 rookies: Leonard Hankerson, Aldrick Robinson, and Niles Paul.

The deal is reportedly for 3 years, $15 million, which is reasonable.  The Redskins are reported to have Santonio Holmes as one of their main targets, but I’m not so sure I’d be going after additional receivers if I were them.
