The Redskins offseason could wind up going a lot of different ways depending on what happens with coach Mike Shanahan and who the team gets to replace him if he leaves.
One player whose future with the team is up in the air is wide receiver Santana Moss. He’s spent the last nine years in Washington and ranks third in franchise history in catches, but the 34-year-old is a free agent at the end of the season. A new regime may not want to bring back an aging wideout, even though he remains a useful player. Moss knows that his departure is a possibility, but says it is something he can’t control and, therefore, isn’t thinking about right now.
“It’s been a beautiful experience. It’s nothing I can ask for more. But I’m not trying to have that conversation now, about how much fun and all that,” Moss said, via John Keim of ESPN.com “That’s something we’ll do down the road. I enjoy every day regardless of what day it is or what year it is. Even my four years before these nine years, I enjoyed those also. Every year it’s going to be something different.”
Moss has played in a variety of systems over the course of his career, so he’d likely be able to offer something to other teams who might be looking for a veteran slot presence this offseason if the Redskins decide to part ways with one of their constants over the last decade.
