When you hear about receivers who are due to become free agents, his name is rarely among the first few mentioned. But he has been highly productive, averaging 81 receptions for 2,251 yards and three touchdowns the past three seasons for a Redskins team that has struggled at the quarterback position. Moss has said that he wants to re-sign with Washington, but I see no reason why the Bears wouldn’t at least consider taking a look at him unless they feel he’s too similar in size, stature and style to receivers such as Johnny Knox and Devin Hester who are already on their roster.To be sure, this is speculation in response to a question on the writer's part and he is not reporting that anyone in the Bears organization has expressed any interest in signing Moss. The point here is that a lot of teams could use a good receiver like Moss. The return of Santana Moss is not entirely up to the Redskins. From what Moss says it appears that he will be willing to give the Redskins a hometown discount, perhaps a substantial one. But it appears that the Redskins are no longer going to engage in bidding wars, especially against themselves. While I would say that right now the odds favor a Moss return, Redskins fans should be prepared to see him in a different uniform in 2011.
After the Washington Redskins regular season ended on Sunday, the players scattered to their offseason homes, and fans got into their usual January mode of contemplating next year. The coaches, however, barely took a breather before returning to work. “What we do for the next few days, is coaches go back, write up their position players, and they will put them in a pecking order; strengths, weaknesses, starters, backups, ascending player, descending player,” Mike Shanahan said. We think that we can give the coaches a few days off. Today and on Monday we will go through the Redskins’ roster and put players into the proper spot on the matrix of ascending/descending and starter/backup. Today, we’ll take a look at the offense.
