The last of the three former Miami Hurricanes was within hours of being released, but has restructured his remaining contract per 106.7 The Fan’s David Elfin.
Hearing that #Redskins have gained $2 million in cap space by restructuring WR Santana Moss’ contract. Should be more than $3M under cap.

Santana Moss, an eleven-year veteran, came to the Redskins in a trade for Laverneus Coles in 2005. Moss made an immediate impact with the team when he caught two touchdowns versus the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football with under five minutes left in the game. He was also named to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams that year. The Redskins defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that year in the Wild Card round before losing to Seattle.
Moss had most recently signed a 3yr/$15 million contract in 2010. During the first two years of this deal Santana has put up 1,699 yards and 10 touchdowns. At age 33, Moss could likely find another suitor because he can provide a strong veteran presence and he still has the ability to create separation. Unlike the release of DeAngelo Hall, this is one loss that most fans are be happy to avoid.
