Gruden: Redskins 'keeping a close eye' on Santana Moss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

With wide receiver Santana Moss still looking to continue his NFL career, Washington coach Jay Gruden said there is a chance the Redskins might re-sign the veteran receiver, who had just 10 catches in 2014.

"We're keeping a close eye on Santana," Gruden said at the NFL owners' meetings in Phoenix, per ESPN. "You know, that's something that we know where Santana is and he knows where we are, and something may work out down the road.

"I could always play with Santana. Santana's a great person. He's great in the locker room for us. He knows all the positions. I know he's going to be in great shape, and I would not hesitate one bit to call him."

Redskins WR Santana Moss ejected from Sunday's game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss was ejected from Sunday's game against the Giants after getting in a heated dispute with the refs following an overturned touchdown call right before halftime. Moss was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty as well.

Moss was upset when the refs overturned an 8-yard touchdown run by quarterback Robert Griffin III after they ruled he was fumbling the football going into the end zone.

by Chris Cwik |

Washington's backup receivers did little Week 14 against the Rams.

Tight end Jordan Reed also had three catches, gaining 25 yards. Andre Roberts hauled in two balls, picking up 11 yards. Niles Paul had one catch for 7 yards. Ryan Grant also had one catch. He finished with 4 yards.

The group will look for more Week 15 against the Giants.

Santana Moss could be on roster bubble
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins receiver Santana Moss is ready to work for his roster spot this year, reports the Washington Post.

Moss, 35, could be on the bubble after the Redskins signed receivers DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts as free agents. That puts Moss at No. 4 at best behind those two receivers and No. 1 option Pierre Garcon.

"I've never not had to go work for my job," Moss said. "So at the end of the day, there's always competition. Like you say, you all will rate where somebody’s at. I never did that. I went out here and worked. That’s why I’m able to be here today is because I've always showed instead of talked about it. So I'm gonna continue to do that. I'm gonna go out here and practice hard and put everything on tape and at the end of the day, you can judge on the tape."

Moss had 42 catches for 452 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Santana Moss likely to retain roster spot
by Larry Hartstein |

It sounds like Redskins receiver Santana Moss, 35, will make the roster, according to ESPN.com. 

"He’s fun to be around, he’s fun to watch, he knows every position," coach Jay Gruden told the website. "He looks like a young kid. He’s got energy, he’s a great leader. If he drops a pass he holds himself accountable. If the quarterback misses him he’s like, ‘Let’s get onto the next one, man.’ He’s a great guy to have for these young guys to learn from. He’s working out hard. He’s the first one out there today again. I like having guys like that, veteran guys who are great examples for rookies and also can help you win in big games."

Gruden added that Moss is "another one that’s going to help this team out."

Santana Moss wants to stay in Washington
by Larry Hartstein |

Receiver Santana Moss, an impending free agent, wants to return to the Redskins for a 10th season, reports ESPN.com. The feeling is apparently mutual, as "the Redskins remain convinced Moss can still help them," the report said.

The sides reportedly have discussed a new contract. Moss, who turns 35 in June, had been viewed as a potential fit in Cleveland based on his ties with new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Several Washington players have minor contributions
by Nando Di Fino |

Redskins running back Roy Helu ran the ball three times for 24 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Giants. He also caught two passes for 14 yards. 

Wide receiver Aldrick Robinson was targeted 10 times, but only managed three catches for 33 yards. The 10 targets were a season-high for Robinson. 

Logan Paulsen caught four passes for 32 yards, and Santana Moss caught two passes for 13 yards. 

Washington finishes the season 3-13, and several changes to personnel and the coaching staff are expected in the offseason.

Washington's backup pass catchers do little Week 16
by Chris Cwik |

Washington WR Aldrick Robinson, WR Santana Moss, WR Josh Gordon and FB Darrel Young did little against the Cowboys Week 16.

Santana Moss steps up with backup quarterback
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss was surprisingly productive in backup quarterback Kirk Cousins' first start in place of Robert Griffin III Week 15 at Atlanta, leading the team with eight catches. His nine targets were second-most on the team, and his 64 receiving yards were third-most.

Even though he also lost two fumbles, it was arguably his most productive game of the season. He had seven catches for 77 yards Week 3 against the Lions, but he caught a touchdown in this one, grabbing a 3-yard toss that would have tied the score with less than a minute to go in the fourth quarter if the Redskins hadn't elected to go for two -- an attempt that ultimately failed.

Moss was used mostly underneath, with three of his catches coming on that final drive. He'll look to validate his role Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Santana Moss, Josh Morgan contribute
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Wide receivers Santana Moss and Josh Morgan both factored in the Redskins passing game Week 14 against the Chiefs. Moss caught three passes for 30 yards. Morgan caught one for 15.

Neither player has been a huge contributor on offense this season, but Moss has been the more consistent of the two, catching at least three passes five times this season. He was targeted six times in Week 14.

Redskins get offensive contributions
by Larry Hartstein |

A slew of Redskins made small offensive contributions Week 13. Receiver Santana Moss caught a 15-yard pass and had a 10-yard run. Receiver Aldrick Robinson had a 9-yard carry and was targeted twice without a catch.

Tight end Fred Davis caught two passes for 13 yards, his first catches since Sept. 15. He also had a terrible drop late in the fourth quarter. Wideout Josh Morgan caught a 10-yard pass, and wideout Nick Williams had a 6-yard grab. Fullback Evan Royster ran twice for zero yards.

They'll face the Chiefs in Week 14.
