Santana Moss WR WAS Jan 27 '12
The Washington Post suggests that Santana Moss lacks "the quickness and explosiveness to get open consistently" going on age 33.
Moss returned from hand surgery in Week 12 of the 2011 regular season and failed to clear 50 yards in all but one of the final six games. OC Kyle Shanahan confirmed that the Skins will eyeball playmaking wideouts this offseason. "We do need to make more plays," Mike's son said. "The one thing that hurt us the most was every touchdown pass we made was caught in the end zone. There wasn't one that was caught outside the end zone and ran in until Week 16 when (RB Roy) Helu caught that screen versus Philly."

Santana Moss was held to three catches for 45 yards in Week 17 against the Eagles.

Santana Moss caught two passes for 40 yards with a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 15 win over the Giants.
Operating almost exclusively out of the slot, Moss took advantage of confusion in the Giants' secondary for a 20-yard touchdown in the second quarter. After that, the Redskins jumped out to a sizable lead and managed the game. Moss ended up with just five targets, behind Jabar Gaffney's nine. He'll be a WR3 option once again when the Redskins face the Vikings' miserable secondary in Week 16.

According to the Detroit News, Santana Moss owes the IRS over $258,000 in back taxes.
Moss allegedly never paid income tax on his $1.9 million 2006 salary. After signing a three-year deal that included $6 million guaranteed in July, Moss should be able to get right with the friendly folks at the Internal Revenue Service rather quickly.

Santana Moss caught three balls for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 14 loss to the Patriots.
He led the Skins with nine targets. A late-game target was actually the clincher for New England, as Moss let Rex Grossman's pass slip through his hands in heavy traffic and into the waiting arms of Jerod Mayo. Moss will still be a recommended WR3 when the Redskins take on the Giants in Week 15.

Santana Moss led the Redskins receivers with 64-of-72 snaps in Week 13.
The rest of the 'Skins receivers: Jabar Gaffney 58, Donte' Stallworth 20, David Anderson 19, Anthony Armstrong 11, Niles Paul 2. Moss also drew 12 targets to Gaffney's zero against the Jets. Moss is locked in as Rex Grossman's top target and a viable WR3 against the Patriots' leaky secondary in Week 14.

Darrelle Revis is not expected to shadow Santana Moss Sunday.
The Jets don't see a true No. 1 receiver on the Redskins, so Revis will roam free. Give Moss a boost into solid WR3 territory. Meanwhile, the Jets are expected to make slowing down Fred Davis a priority, leaving the Redskins' leading pass-catcher as a low-end TE1.

Santana Moss has confirmed he came out of Sunday's win without any further issues with his broken hand.
"Once I got out there and got a couple hits here and there and caught a couple balls, it was like normal," Moss said. Moss tied Roy Helu and Jabar Gaffney for a team-high seven targets, but was clearly operating as Washington's No. 1 receiver. He has a tough matchup lined up for Week 13, where he figures to draw the attention of Darrelle Revis against the Jets.

Santana Moss caught four passes for 29 yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.
In his first game since breaking his hand in Week 7, Moss functioned as the clear No. 1 receiver. He played virtually every snap at the "X" position, tying for the team lead with seven targets. Moss' hand didn't appear to be an issue despite a fumble, but he will be a weak WR3 option against the Jets next week.
