The amazing part about the Redskins offseason splurge at wide receiver could be that they only bought one starter, not two.
Despite handing out a pair of quick free agent contracts to Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan, there’s a chance Santana Moss is still a starter this year, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano.
He wrote that after visiting Redskins minicamp, he “came away believing they have the slimmed-down Moss projected as the starting wide receiver opposite Pierre Garcon” and that “he retains a chance to be the Redskins’ No. 1 wide receiver in 2012.”
As surprising as that seems given the outlay for a pair of weapons in March, it’s worth pointing out it’s still the Redskins.
No amount of wasteful free agent spending should be considered a surprise anymore, no matter what Clinton Portis says.
