Seven years ago today


With big time NFL trades on the minds of Redskins fans today, I thought I would revisit another trade that the Redskins made on this date 7 years ago. If history repeats itself, Redskins fans should be excited about the future with RGIII. On March 10, 2005 the Redskins traded WR Laveranues Coles to the New York Jets in return for WR Santana Moss in a rare player-for-player swap. Moss had a career year in 2005, his first with the team recording 84 receptions for 1,483 yards and 9 touchdowns. Since that time he has been the team’s #1 wideout, a leader in the locker room, and through many seasons was the only bright spot on some forgettable offenses. Besides the occasional “shoe-shining” 15 yard penalties, Moss has been a true professional in his tenure with the team, and I would say that most people agree the Redskins ended up getting the better end of that deal. Moss needs 858 more receiving yards to reach the 10,000 yard mark for his career. Can RGIII help Santana reach that plateau in 2012?
