This Day In History: Redskins Acquire Santana Moss

No offense is complete without a go-to wide receiver. Once you have it, special things are in store.

The Washington Redskins rounded out their offense for years to come on March 10, 2005, when they acquired wide receiver Santana Moss from the New York Jets.
Just two games into his Redskins tenure, Moss interjected himself into Redskins-Cowboys rivalry by scoring two touchdowns late in a come from behind 14-13 victory.

He would go on to record a career-high 1,483 yards and nine touchdowns that year.

In 10 seasons with the Redskins, the Miami product recorded 581 receptions for 7,867 yards and 47 touchdowns.

Moss ranks third all-time in franchise history in receptions (581), fourth in yards (7867) and seventh in touchdowns (47).

While the pending free agent’s status with the team heading into the 2015 season remains unknown, his career with the Redskins is, and always will be, memorable.
