The Washington Redskins have re-signed leading receiver Santana Moss to a three-year, $15 million deal, according to ESPN.
Retaining Moss, who has led the team in receiving in each of the last six seasons, was one of the Redskins’ top priorities of the offseason.
Moss, 32, and Coach Mike Shanahan were on record saying they wanted to work out a deal to keep him in a Redskins uniform. The two sides reached an agreement on the evening of the first possible day Washington was able to negotiate with Moss since the end of the lockout.
Moss, who didn’t immediately return a phone call, last season thrived in his first year under Kyle Shanahan, reeling in a career-high 93 catches, third in the NFL. He also recorded the fourth 1,000-plus yard season of his career.
Now the question is if Moss will remain Washington’s top receiving threat. The team also reportedly has interest in signing Santonio Holmes away from the Jets.
