Santana Moss WR WAS 18 Days
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.

Impending free agent Santana Moss is considered doubtful to re-sign with the Redskins.
Aside from Pierre Garcon, the Redskins don't have much at receiver. They need to be seeking upgrades this offseason, moving on from veterans Moss and Josh Morgan. Moss will turn 35 in June and isn't anywhere close to the player he was early in his career. It's quite possible Moss' playing days ended in Week 17.
Santana Moss WR WAS 10 Months
Santana Moss caught two passes for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Giants.
It could very well be the final game of Moss' career. He's an unrestricted free agent that will turn 35 in June and can no longer separate. Despite an injury to Leonard Hankerson, Moss finishes his 13th NFL season with 42 catches for 452 yards with two touchdowns. He hasn't topped 600 yards or 50 catches since 2010 and will struggle to find a market come March.
