Moss: 'I've got another year in me'

According to a report, the Redskins, who drafted two wide receivers earlier this month, currently have no interest in bringing back Moss for an 11th year with the team. Although an injury situation could change that, for now it looks like he is done in Washington.

But he is not necessarily done in the NFL.

“I’ve got another year in me,” Moss told InsideTheU, which covers sports at Moss’ alma mater, the University of Miami.

“I’m a free agent right now, you know how they do us old guys,” Moss said. “I’m going on my 15th year. Right now my agent is talking with some teams to see what’s going to be my best scenario. Right now I’m just chilling, just enjoying life, and enjoying this off time.”

The Redskins are letting him walk as a free agent after he caught 10 passes for 116 yards in 10 games in 2015. Moss didn’t seem bitter about his very limited role (133 snaps, 6 games inactive) but he thinks he could have done more.

“If I sit here and tell you who I am and what I can do, I should be able to tell you that, but when you talk to the guys that played with me and know what I was capable of a lot of people was pissed that I wasn’t out there,” he said. “But at the end of the day we had a lot of young guys that we paid to play and at the end of the day it’s that time. Personally I wanted to play and that’s the reason why I was there, but I know this game well enough and I know you’re not going to pay a guy who is in his 14th year to be on your team just to sit on the bench.”

Moss is nothing if not realistic. He wants a shot with another team but if he doesn’t get it he’ll be fine.

“I can’t predict it and I won’t predict it,” Moss said in the Redskins locker room the day after last season ended. “And I won’t sit here and dwell on it. I’ll enjoy my life and I’ll be prepared for whatever happens in the offseason, whatever phone call I get.”

When he is done, whether that’s now or later, he’s not looking for a big sendoff. Don’t expect him to call a tearful retirement press conference or anything like that.

“I don’t get into all that stuff,” he said. “You all drag stuff on and make it bigger than what it is. When I’m done I’ll be home and there will be no goodbyes. That’s how I’ll do it.”

Redskins vs. Jets Preseason Week 2: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

After a fight-filled start to joint practices between the Redskins and Jets, the Skins' 2018 NFL preseason schedule continues Thursday night at Fed Ex Field against New York. 

Week 2 of the NFL preseason still doesn't provide a lot of answers to questions about team performance, but it begins to reveal the depth the Redskins could have this season.

One storyline that won't be taking place, is the return of former Redskin Terrelle Pryor, who told reporters after Monday's practice he won't be playing in the game.

The Redskins have bigger things to worry about though, like who will replace rookie Derrius Guice, who's now out for the year with a torn ACL.

The Redskins also have one less name in the fight for receiver depth as well, after Robert Davis suffered a season-ending leg injury as well. 

Ahead of Thursday's preseason matchup, here's everything you need to know to watch.

Three Redskins make Bill Barnwell's "Perfect 53-man Roster"

Three Redskins make Bill Barnwell's "Perfect 53-man Roster"

Each season, ESPN's Bill Barnwell takes the NFL's $177 million salary cap and builds "the perfect 53-man roster." This year, three Redskins — two obvious and one not so obvious — made the cut. 

Brandon Scherff, Chase Roullier and Zach Brown joined some of the NFL's finest on the "perfect roster."

There were several rules when it came to its construction.  First, there needed to be at least one player –  but no more than three – from each NFL team. How much each player would cost was determined by their current cap number after any restructuring, but without cap acceleration. There's at least one player from the 2015, '16,'17, and '18 drafts, with one player from each round and an undrafted free agent. Barnwell built his offense so that it fits within the Patriots' and Josh McDaniels' system, while the defense is built around Jim Schwartz and the Philadelphia Eagles' unit. Special teams was also included. 

Barnwell spent $6.75 million on Scherff and $592,000 on Roullier. He describes the "perfect roster's" O-line as "mobile enough to routinely get to the second level on run-pass options and screens and big enough to bulldoze defensive linemen one-on-one." 

Scherff –  the fifth overall pick in the 2015 draft – has made two Pro Bowls in three years and has started every game he's appeared in. The Redskins picked up the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, extending his time with the team through 2019. At just 26-years-old, a big deal will be coming his way at some point. Scherff was also named a starter on the "perfect roster."

The Redskins drafted Roullier in the sixth-round of the 2017 draft, and in just one season, he has earned the starting center job after Spencer Long missed a chunk of the season with injury and eventually left for the Jets in free agency. Pro Football Focus ranked Roullier the No. 21 center in the league during the 2017 season, and he will have a vital role in helping Alex Smith make the transition to a new offense as smooth as possible. 

And then there's Zach Brown. Barnwell spent $2.95 million on the linebacker, saying, "We need cover linebackers with the range to scare quarterbacks from throwing over the middle of the field." When it comes to Brown specifically, Barnwell goes on to say, "The league doesn't seem to value Brown, but he has been an excellent run defender on early downs and isn't much of a liability in coverage."

The Redskins saw his value and signed Brown to a three-year deal back in March after picking him up in free agency during the 2017 offseason. Brown started 13 games in 2017, racking up 127 tackles (84 solo) and 2.5 sacks on his was to finishing ninth in the league in tackles during the regular season.
