GAUGING THE REDSKINS

Receivers

Coaches are hoping the biggest change in the offense will be at wide receiver. Coming off his third 1,000-yard season, Santana Moss (right) is still a playmaker, and if he's healthy, he'll continue to be a problem for most secondary units. The Redskins are hoping Moss will have a better complement on the opposite side, where Kelly will line up at flanker. He and Thomas are big targets who should give Campbell a much-needed deep threat. The Redskins ranked 28th in the league last season in receptions of 20 yards or more and 29th in receptions of 40 or more. Even if he's no longer technically the No. 2 wide receiver, eighth-year veteran Antwaan Randle El should be plenty involved in the offense. Coaches are excited to slide him into the slot, where they envision potential mismatches and think his quickness will be more of an advantage. At tight end, Chris Cooley is as reliable as they come. He led the team in receptions a year ago, and if the offense is able to utilize a two-tight end set more often, Davis, the second-year tight end, can assume more pass-blocking responsibilities and give Cooley more freedom to roam.
