Santana Moss WR WAS 1 year ago

Moss was ejected from Sunday's game against the Giants after getting upset with a call late in the first half, the New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano reports.

Robert Griffin III appeared to score a rushing touchdown right before halftime, but after a replay review the referee made a befuddling decision to overturn the call. Moss was none too happy with the call and went at the officials, yelling and even swatting one of their hands away at one point. He'll finish the game with one catch for 18 yards.

Moss is listed as inactive for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers.

Moss has only logged 10 offensive snaps the entire season, and won't see an opportunity to add to that total in Week 11. Although head coach Jay Gruden has hinted that Moss will be active at some point this season, things currently aren't looking optimistic for the 35-year-old wideout.

Coach Jay Gruden hinted Saturday that Moss would be activated at some point this season, the Washington Post's Liz Clarke reports. "I would imagine that by season's end, he's going to get his reps and he's going to get his looks. I don't know when that will be though," Gruden said of Moss.

Gruden has made it clear that he values raw speed in his wide receivers, and that is a trait that Moss no longer has in spades. Aldrick Robinson and Ryan Grant are currently ahead of Moss on the depth chart, and for now, the veteran receiver remains inactive, but there's a chance that will change later in the season.

Moss is listed as inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Moss was also inactive for last weekend's season opener versus the Texans. With the 35-year-old sitting out another contest, Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant will serve as the Redskins' primary slot receivers Sunday.

Moss is inactive Sunday at Houston.

Moss' absence isn't a total surprise in his age-35 season. Robert Griffin will instead turn to Pierre Garcon, as well as offseason additions DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts, in the passing attack.

Moss and Andre Roberts started Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots in place of DeSean Jackson (ankle) and Pierre Garcon (hamstring), the Washington Post reports.

Jackson, Garcon and Roberts are locked in as the top three wide receivers, leaving Moss to compete for the No. 4 role against the likes of Ryan Grant, Aldrick Robinson, and perhaps Leonard Hankerson (knee). Moss could come into deep-league relevance with an injury in front of him, and his ability to return punts should help his chances of making the team.

ESPN's John Keim expects Santana Moss to make the Redskins' 53-man roster.

Keim allows that Moss "still needs a good camp," but believes his spot is secure. Leonard Hankerson (knee) missed OTAs and minicamp, and could open 2014 on reserve/PUP. Moss likely only needs to hold off Aldrick Robinson and Nick Williams for the No. 5 receiver job.

Santana Moss admits his spot on the 53-man roster is not secure.

"I've never not had to go work for my job," Moss said Monday. "So at the end of the day, there's always competition." Now 35, Moss' spot was made tenuous by the additions of Andre Roberts and DeSean Jackson, not to mention Moss' sub-par play in 2013. He'll be in competition with Aldrick Robinson or Leonard Hankerson in camp.

ESPN's John Keim believes Santana Moss' road to make the roster became more difficult when the Redkins' signed Desean Jackson.

Jackson's signing will likely shift Andre Roberts into the third-receiver, slot role formerly manned by Moss. Turning 35 in June, Moss was a shell of his former self last season, struggling to a 42-452-2 campaign. Moss will likely have to beat out one of Aldrick Robinson or Leonard Hankerson in training camp to keep his job.

The Washington Post reports the Redskins and free agent Santana Moss have talked about a new contract.

Moss will turn 35 in June and has lost multiple steps over the past couple seasons. However, he remains a sure-handed receiver who does his best work out of the slot. The Redskins should be aiming higher, but Moss won't command any guaranteed money and will fight for a roster spot this summer if re-signed.
