Why Santana Moss believes the Redskins have 'something brewing' at wide receiver

Why Santana Moss believes the Redskins have 'something brewing' at wide receiver

Where you see a lack of proven threats at wide receiver for the Redskins, Santana Moss actually sees an opportunity for the team to really surprise at that position.

During an appearance on 106.7 The Fan's Chad Dukes vs. The World this week, the Burgundy and Gold legend explained that he thinks Washington's free agency approach means they're far more confident in their wideouts than anyone else is.

"They have something going on, something brewing with some of those receivers, that they're gonna do something a little differently," Moss said. "I don't know. I'm just saying that's what I'm thinking, because I see how people play chess sometimes."

Moss should know when the Redskins are up to something, considering his past. 

In 2012, Mike Shanahan and the franchise gave no real indication that they'd be running a read-option and pistol-based offense during training camp and the preseason. Then, Week 1 came around and Robert Griffin III lit up the Saints and many other opponents after that with a scheme that seemed to come out of nowhere.

Moss was a part of that roster, meaning he has a true grasp of what it's like to be among a group that has "something brewing." And he's getting those same vibes when it comes to the 2020 Redskins.

"I'm just looking forward to whatever they might do," he said.

Rivera and Scott Turner certainly have a lot of options to choose from. Terry McLaurin should be the star again, but after him, there's the intriguing Steven Sims, the physical Kelvin Harmon, the raw yet well-regarded Antonio Gandy-Golden (whom Moss especially likes) and then the versatile Antonio Gibson, who could get involved in many ways.

In fact, Moss believes that crew is talented enough to make up for what's maybe the weakest spot on the entire depth chart.

"I think they have something planned for the guys that they have that's going to allow them to not have to lean so much on a tight end," he told 106.7 The Fan.

Would this entire situation be better if the organization was able to land Amari Cooper? Duhhhhhhhhhh. Everything at receiver would be more definite considering how successful Cooper's been as a pro, instead of all the potential-based discussions that are happening with the current collection of pass catchers.

Cooper remains a Cowboy, though, and the Redskins will proceed with their young corps. In Moss' mind, that's completely fine. In a few months, everyone else will get to find out whether it really is.

If the Redskins go with a new name, quarterback Dwayne Haskins has a favorite

As the Redskins name-change debate continues to gain steam, people everywhere are weighing in on potential options for a switch.

Scanning social media, the leaders in the clubhouse seem to be the Washington Warriors, Redtails and Redhawks.

At least one of those names has the blessing of a player fans hope will eventually become the face of the franchise.

With several former Ohio State players on the team -- Dwayne Haskins, Chase Young, Terry McLaurin -- Bleacher Report's Matt Miller tossed around the idea of changing the Redskins to the Buckeyes. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins responded saying he liked the Redtails.

The Redtails were a group of Tuskegee airmen, all-black fighter pilots during World War II.

Haskins said "that's if we have to change the name," making clear he isn't taking a stance on whether the team should change the name.

Reports have suggested a name change is likely before the 2020 season begins.

Report: Globetrotters willing to sell Washington Generals name to Redskins

Report: Globetrotters willing to sell Washington Generals name to Redskins

As the Washington football team mulls over the increasingly likely decision to change its name from the Redskins, the parent company of the Harlem Globetrotters suggested Friday that it'd be interested in giving the team another option.

According to Action Network's Darren Rovell, a spokesman for Herschend Entertainment said the company would "love" for the Redskins or NFL to call about buying the rights to the Washington Generals name.

The Generals are the frequent opponent of the Globetrotters, almost always on the losing end of the fun basketball competition. Herschend Entertainment owns trademarks for both the Generals and Globetrotters.

“We think that the Globetrotters are right up there as the most liked team in the world with Manchester United and the New York Yankees,” Brett Meister, the spokesman, said. “Our heritage includes the Washington Generals.”

The Generals also have other local ties, as the team's former owner/coach/player Red Klotz was a member of the 1948 title-winning Baltimore Bullets.
