Terrence Austin Wants Santana Moss Back In 2011

Santana Moss has long been one of the Redskins go-to-guys on the field and in the locker room. However, Washington is in danger of losing its most productive receiver in free agency, leaving a gaping hole on an already unstable offense.

Towards the end of last season Moss repeatedly expressed a desire to return, which is a positive sign should Bruce Allen choose to re-sign him. His services will be in high demand, but Moss has made it clear he would prefer to finish what he started with the Redskins.

Fellow receiver Terrence Austin echoed those sentiments, attributing his development to Moss' guidance.

"I would love to see him back and that's one thing I hope they can work out," he said in a phone interview last Friday. "It was an honor to get here and actually learn from him and I don't feel like I've soaked up all that I need to get from him."

Hearing Austin speak about Moss with such respect, it's clear his impact stretches far beyond his own performance. He has been extremely supportive of the younger, more inexperienced receivers on the team and that selfless approach isn't often a common trait among talented wide outs.

If the Redskins can come to an agreement with Moss, keeping him in Washington a few more seasons, best believe Austin will be happy.

"I'm going to try to do whatever I can to try and help get him back if I can do anything," he said. "I love that guy. He was like a big brother to me the whole season."
