After some rumblings that perhaps he could depart to other teams (namely the Chiefs) the Redskins' top wideout Santana Moss chose instead to return to Washington, agreeing to a reported 3 year, $15 million dollar contract. The deal is expected to pay Moss $6 million in guarantees.
The 32 old Moss was the Redskins leading receiver last season, finishing with a career high 93 catches.
What will excite fans the most about this deal is the fact that the Redskins did not have to pay top dollar to keep Moss. In fact, his contract compares favorably to both Donald Driver and Hines Ward's contract extensions from recent years.
Now the the Redskins have made their first big move in free agency, it will be interesting to see which direction they got in next. It is expected that the team will at the very least negotiate with Jamaal Brown, as well as Jets wideout Santonio Holmes and Packers defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins.
