NFL Free Agency: Santana Moss Officially Becomes Unrestricted Free Agent

Santana Moss is officially no longer under contract with the Washington Redskins. Moss' contract became void as expected on Friday, making the wide receiver an unrestricted free agent on March 4, when the current NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement is set to expire. 

This news isn't exactly a surprise, since both sides knew it was coming for a long time. However, it does bring into question whether the Redskins will elect to keep Moss going forward. Moss is looking for a two- or three-year contract, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

It's believed Moss is seeking a two- or three-year deal that averages about $5 million a season.

That's about the same kind of contract as fellow 30-something Donald Driver signed last summer with the Green Bay Packers. If Moss is indeed looking for that kind of deal, the Redskins would probably be wise to give it to him. A youth movement must begin, but having a productive veteran wide receiver like Moss for that reasonable a price is a must.
