Santana Moss became a free agent when his deal expired last week, but the Washington Redskins wide receiver still plans to play his home games at FedEx Field next season.
Moss, who will turn 32 this summer, started all 16 games for the Redskins last season while hauling in 93 receptions for 1,115 total yards and six touchdowns.
Those numbers probably have more than just the Redskins interested in the veteran, but Moss told Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio on Friday that he’d prefer to re-sign with Washington.
“My first choice is to stay in Washington,” Moss said in the interview. “My mind is nowhere outside of Washington. The fans are great. The organization has treated me well since day one. That’s where I want to be, when it’s all said and done.”
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.”
It’s unlikely anything actually happens with this situation until the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement is settled.
