Santana Moss’ contract will void on Friday

The NFLPA database shows wide receiver Santana Moss‘ contract as extending through 2012, but the Redskins were forced to restructure his deal during the 2009 offseason to account for their excessive spending. One of the clauses added to Moss’ deal made him eligible for free agency in 2011.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Moss’ contract will officially void on Friday, five days after Super Bowl XLV.

He’ll be eligible to test the free agent waters once a new C.B.A. is established.

Moss set a career high with 93 receptions in 2010, playing all 16 games for the third straight season. His yards-per-reception average fell to 12.0, a career low, but that was due mostly to playing a different position in first-year Redskins coach Mike Shanahan’s offense. Shanahan used the longtime deep threat as a slot receiver.

Washington is dangerously thin in the receiver corps, and it’s fair to wonder if Moss might be under consideration for the franchise or transition tag.

Moss turns 32 in June, so the Redskins probably aren’t going to sign him long term.

    Sounds like Moss will be playing for whatever the league minimum is when it gets decided.

    The Redskins’ personnel department has truly been something else under Dan Snyder.

    He has a permanent seat at the “These Guys Just Don’t Get It” table of meddling NFL owners alongside Al Davis, Ralph Wilson and Jerry Jones.

    Find a team that can win it all. That would be a great way to top off your career!

    I wouldn’t count the Vikings out for being interested in S. Moss……they will be releasing B. Berrian and his huge contract, $7M per and teaming Moss with Rice and Harvin would be an elite trio of wr’s…and Z. Wilf has shown time and time again he isn’t afraid to spend money on free agents or big contracts. I think the Vikes could get a top wr in Moss and spend less than they have for Berrian………plus they will be saving about $20M on Favre’s contract. The Vikes need someone who can still stretch the field and Moss would be a great fit.

    New England or Indianapolis would be a great fit.

    The Pats would love him. They’ve got a pretty good QB.
