Some unfavorable information about Santana Moss came out Friday afternoon when the Detroit News reported that the Washington Redskins receiver owes the Internal Revenue Service $258,017 in unpaid income taxes from 2006.

The IRS filed a tax lean Nov.22 against Moss’s $5.2 million Florida home, according to court documents.
