Redskins, Moss Agree On New Contract

The Redskins have agreed to a contract extension with wide receiver Santana Moss, the team announced on Wednesday. Moss's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was at Redskins Park on Wednesday finalizing the contract extension.

The team scheduled a Thursday afternoon press conference to discuss the contract extension.

Moss is expected to participate in the team's voluntary off-season workout program starting Thursday.

The Redskins acquired Moss on March 10 in the highly publicized trade that sent unhappy wide receiver Laveranues Coles to the New York Jets.

Moss, 25, played four seasons with the Jets and accumulated 151 receptions for 2,416 yards and 19 touchdowns.

The 5-10, 185-pound wide receiver out of Miami (Fla.) finished the 2004 season with 45 receptions for 838 yards and a team-high five touchdown grabs.

In the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers last season, Moss logged a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown.

In 2003, Moss set career highs with 74 receptions for 1,105 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Moss entered the league in 2001 as a first-round (16th overall) draft choice by the Jets.
