Report: Redskins' Santana Moss Contract Voids This Week, Making Him A Free Agent

It looks like the Redskins will have to make a decision as to whether or not to bring back Santana Moss. The veteran receiver's contract will void at the end of the week, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN:

The contract of Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss voids this week, five days after the Super Bowl, making him an unrestricted free agent whenever there is a new collective bargaining agreement, according to a league source.

Moss restructured his contract in 2009 and included a clause that said his contract will automatically void five days after Super Bowl XLV.

As stated in the report, Moss' eligibility as a free agent depends on the status of the new collective bargaining agreement. The question for the Redskins moving forward is if they will choose to start negotiating a new contract with Moss before the new CBA is completed, or if they will let this play out a bit longer and even let him test the market if the new CBA is reached.

One way or the other, it looks like the true impact of the labor negotiations on the Redskins (as well as every other NFL team) will be in full swing in the weeks and months ahead.
