Report: Redskins restructure Santana Moss’ contract

According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the Redskins have restructured Santana Moss’ contract that will keep him around a little longer.

The Redskins continue to free up cap space, restructuring the contract of veteran wide receiver Santana Moss, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

Moss was entering the final season of a three-year deal and would have counted for $6.1 million against the salary cap. But by restructuring his deal, Washington has saved $2 million.

The Redskins entered last week roughly $3 million over the salary cap and then re-signed five players with expiring deals and tendered another.

Moss has flourished as a slot reciever in Kyle Shanahan’s offense and he clearly knows that no other team can use him the way the Skins do.  Smart move by him to stick around.
