Despite new additions, Santana Moss might still be the man

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.
