Report: Redskins make decision on future of Santana Moss

After 10 years it looks like Santana Moss’ time with the Redskins has come to an end.

Moss, who will turn 36 on June 1, is a free agent and, according to John Keim of ESPN, he will not be re-signed by the team.

Moss came to the Redskins from the Jets in a rare trade of high-profile players. Laveranues Coles went from Washington to New York.

The trade paid dividends immediately as Moss set the team record for receiving yards in a season his first year with the Redskins, catching 84 passes for 1,483 yards and nine touchdowns. The record still stands. That was the first of six straight seasons in which Moss was the team’s leading receiver.

Many thought that Moss would not be with the team last year but he was re-signed on the first day of free agency and he made the 53-man roster. He played just 10 games and caught 10 passes. Late in the season he indicated to reporters that he might not be back this year, although it wouldn’t necessarily be by his choice. Moss is free to sign with another team is he wants to but that seems unlikely.

How's the knee? Trent Williams looks beyond ready in workout videos

How's the knee? Trent Williams looks beyond ready in workout videos

Trent Williams went under the knife for his first-ever knee surgery about seven months ago.

Plenty of Redskins fans worried that the Pro Bowl left tackle might not be ready to go when the 2018 season starts.

Worry no more. 

Yes, that is Williams working out with veteran running back Adrian Peterson. And by the looks of it, Williams' knee looks just fine. 

Williams tore his right patella tendon last fall, but continued to play through the pain while the Redskins chances of a playoff bid remained. Once that window got firmly closed after an ugly Thursday night loss in Dallas, Williams contemplated sitting out, but other injuries on the line had already decimated the Redskins. Eventually, Williams shut down his season after a blowout loss in Los Angeles to open December. 

This offseason, Williams got the knee repaired. Washington coach Jay Gruden said repeatedly during the offseason that he expected Williams ready to go for training camp, and the workout videos suggest that to be the case.

This is great news for the Redskins offense, and for new quarterback Alex Smith. Expect Washington to be cautious with Williams, particularly in the early going of training camp in Richmond, but like Trent tweeted, "the walk says it all."
