The first order of business for the Washington Redskins in NFL free agency appears to have been completed. The team has re-signed wide receiver Santana Moss to a three-year contract worth $15 million, with a $6 million signing bonus, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal cannot be officially announced until Friday evening, but it appears to be done.
Moss, 32, is coming off one of the best seasons of his career, one that saw him snag a career-high 93 balls for 1,115 yards and six touchdowns. He had spoken about the desire to return to the Redskins, and had also said he wanted it to get done quickly. Mission accomplished on both fronts.
It remains unclear whether this affects the Redskins' pursuit of New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes or Minnesota Vikings receiver Sidney Rice. Either way, Moss will be a part of the picture.
