Moss situation may complicate an already-uncertain receiver corps

Santana Moss, the Redskins' top wide receiver, could face disciplinary action for being linked with Canadian doctor Anthony Galea, who is charged with smuggling and distributing human growth hormone, stirring more doubt about the Redskins' receiving corps as Coach Mike Shanahan prepares for his first season in Washington.

The Redskins released veteran wideout Antwaan Randle El, who quickly re-signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly, high picks in the 2008 draft, have shown flashes of ability but are still working to become consistent performers. The Redskins in April signed veteran wideouts Joey Galloway and Bobby Wade and drafted former UCLA standout Terrence Austin.

"Devin Thomas has been hurt through most of the minicamps and OTAs [organized team activities]," Mike Shanahan said Wednesday. "It's good to get Devin back and watch him in these OTAs because I didn't get a chance to watch him except for the first day in our minicamp. Malcolm, it's like all of the receivers, learning the system, getting the chance to show their skills. It's going to be an interesting question here over the next two months, three months. We got a number of wide receivers that are competing for a position. I like what I have seen thus far."

In 2009, Moss, who turns 31 on June 1, led the Redskins with 70 catches for 902 yards (a 12.9-yard average) and scored three touchdowns. Last May, the Redskins reworked Moss's contract, giving him a signing bonus of almost $6.3 million, of which a little more than $2.3 million was deferred until April 1 of this year. Moss is scheduled to receive a base salary of $968,500 and his contract is voidable after the season.

Even if Moss avoids suspension, he averaged the fewest yards per catch of his career last season and is coming off knee surgery. If Galloway makes the season-opening roster, he would be in his 17th season. Over the last two seasons, Galloway had only 20 receptions for 205 yards. His last touchdown reception was in 2006.

Wade has never had more than 647 yards receiving in a season and has scored only nine touchdowns in his eight-year career. Newly acquired quarterback Donovan McNabb has spoken favorably of Thomas and Kelly, and they are beginning their third seasons. For many reasons, the Redskins need them to take big steps forward this season.

Okay, it was rude to suggest trading Cooley for Johnson (4-12, everyone's fair game), but if we could land Johnson, this gaping wound would be immediately treated and then some..We haven't had a dominating wide receiver since Monk and Clark or C. Taylor..And, of course, we had a top QB at the time, like now..Package Haynesworth, D. Thomas and a 3rd for AJ, and let the points fly!!

Rules are in place and he should be punished if found guilty, but they should still look into these hormones. All I'm saying is that if it's week 15 and our best player goes down and we had a chance to have him back in a couple weeks for the playoffs if he were allowed to take HGH's, then I'm all for it! I know injuries are apart of the game, but this way it would be legal and fair for all to take, not just a few that take them now and get an unfair advantage. Just re-analyze, that's all I'm sayin!
And by the way, there have been tons of rules changed for the better of the game: radio in offensive/defensive player's helmets, 2-point conversions, pass interference, replay good, replay bad, then replay good again with a few changes!

Maybe Moss's likely absence is a blessing in disguise -- it will force Kelly and Thomas onto the field as the main WRs. They've had 2 full years to develop -- now they need to show if they've grown up.

I'm also not sure why JR and Maese call Terrence Austin a "standout". He was a 7th round pick ... and it seems the thinking was that he'll be a special teams guy -- not a WR that plays much.

Lastly, we can expect another round or 2 of 2nd guessing on the decision to release Marko.

I think that the solution to Malcolm Kelly's thumb injury, the fabled "candy shot," might be of assistance in this regard. Wait ... maybe the wrong day to bring that up ...

Andre Johnson is not going anywhere. He is not the type of player you part ways over a contract dispute. He has 5 years left on his contract and it is at a very low price. The last thing Houston would want back for Johnson would AH. It would take 2 first round picks and some other type of compensation for Johnson.

Actually, I don't think the rules on HGH are all that clear on this point. I think that, if he were suspended, it would be for conduct detrimental to the team ... and, if he were punished, it might have something to do with federal drug laws and conspiracy to import an unapproved drug or some such. On the latter, whoever the unnamed player was he helped himself out immeasurably by cooperating with the feds. That much seems like it goes a long way with Sheriff Goodell. Because of the injury v. performance enhancement angle, this one is going to be a tricky one for the Sheriff ... or at least a new kind of one. He has said (and I think he's been consistent about this) that he takes it all into consideration ... just b/c a player gets suspended for something once doesn't mean that the next guy gets the same treatment ... its a facts-and-circumstances thing.

This issue isn't going away anytime soon and is only going to be a bigger story as the lapse of the CBA draws closer. Jon Jansen's admission about other players HGH user is going to have another bookend as far as the League is concerned.

The time-table is a good question.

Cushing tested positive last September and it took a whole year to go through the appeals process.

If the formal investigation continues on through this season, and then Moss gets hit with a ban next season but appeals it; Moss could conceivably play for 2 more years without this catching up to him in terms of suspension.

At that point, he may just retire.

I wouldn't say this is a blessing in disguise. Moss was by far our best WR. It's not like DT/MK have not had ample opportunities to get on the field and impress with their play - they have, they just haven't been that impressive. I don't know if being "forced" out there has anything to do with whether you can actually put up and make plays. The organization was practically begging one of them to step up.

Luckily, we have a QB that has been effective in this league passing the ball without needing that big-time go-to receiver.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure there is going to be a timetable for all of this, with an ongoing investigation and then you can bet that Moss will appeal any suspension.

Like I said in a previous post, he could conceivably play 2 more seasons without being suspended and then just retire.

HGH is a banned substance in the NFL. Any player known to have used a banned substance faces punishment by the league given precedent in the recent Brian Cushing incident Moss will receive a minimum 4 game suspension maybe more. Monk the case isnt against Moss he will be asked to be a witness for the FEDS against Galea. Initial reports have indicated the player from Washington (Moss) has cooperated with federal investigators.

Moss has been a Cowboy Killa so it would really suck for him to be suspended at the beginning of the season - our first game against the Cowboys.

Also, what about the Williams brothers (are they brothers?) that play for the Vikings. Did they ever get suspended?

Posted by: Lisa_R | May 20, 2010 2:45 PM | Report abuse

Don't know why Moss situation should complicate any uncertainty with the receiving corps... because IMHO at least, they're all pretty useless.

In fact, it might make it a bit easier to cut him/trade him in favor of someone who can actually run patterns, get open, catch passes, run to the goal line, and maybe even score a few touchdowns... that is, when he isn't blocking for another runner or receiver who might be doing a bit of the aforementtioned... and no, TO isn't the answer either.

The scenario with Moss is different he has already been in contact with Federal investigators. As soon as the Feds release the name "officially" Goodell will act quickly to hand down a punishment. We are not talking about failing a urine test. This is continued use of a banned substance over a period of 2 seasons. In the eyes of the NFL Moss has been cheating for 2 years. I have a feeling Goodell isnt going to be pleased with Santana. How do you appeal something that you admitted to in a sworn statement to federal investigators.

Agree with frak on this one.

Houston believes they are close and they want to win now - draft picks aren;t going to help them do that.

I think they;d certainly be interested in a prime DT to help that defense get past the Colts (the bane of their NFL existence).

Of course losing A.Johnson is a MAJOR step back for them, but in gaining back a player like AH, they could figure it to be one step back - one step forward.

It's not going to go down that way.

You are confusing the League's personal conduct policy with the League's PED policy.

Goodell does not have authority to act unilaterally against a player that is being punished for using a banned substance.

THere is no indication that Moss was involved in any illegal activity in receiving treatment - maybe the doctor was in the way that he was administering/transporting it. As far as I know, HGH is not a banned substance in the U.S.A. and so Moss would not be doing anything illegal in taking it.

Shanahan strikes me as being a little too clever to sit back while he gets stuck behind the eight ball with his receiving corps. He's already signed two free agents and he will be looking at other avenues to bring more receivers into camp. I don't expect any "Jason Taylor"-type panic moves, but I think we will see a free agent signing here and there, and maybe a trade of a player on defense rendered obsolete with the switch to a 3-4. I think Kevin Curtis or Javon Walker would be interesting additions.

There is a certain blogga...

Who posted several times that the redskin receiving corp was comprised of youth that showed little promise and vets whose best days were behind them....

And now, in the wake of the Moss Mess, it appears the team either has to decide to insure itself at the position by adding players or standing pat with the hope that the Class of '08 (MK and DT) takes the next step and makes folks forget about Moss....

Who knows what Shanallen will do?

Is it time to let bygones be bygones and add T.O.?

Is there the guts to pull a trade for T.J. Housemanshaneh, Vincent Jackson, or L Coles?

I dunno....

Its in most everyone's interest to close this case quickly. 4 games is the going rate. The Skins are better off knowing when it will occur. Goodell is better off getting to the bottom of this quickly. Moss doesn't need to be in limbo.

Its highly unlikely that Moss gets around it, but perhaps he didn't get HGH, but got other treatments.

So unless, there are other shoes to drop (and there certainly could be), everyone is better if this is handled sooner.

Well, we know the NFL can punish anyone for any reason - even if they are not guilty.

Just being under suspicion of being suspicious.

Don't call him th "Commissioner."

Call him "king."

Time to move on...Moss has not been that good recently or consistent. Im sure he rubs it on his hamstring!

It was pretty funny that Sanchez and D'Brick arrived together. Ferguson in a smart tux and Sanchez in a lovely turqoise gown by Givenchy, showing a lot of cleavage and thigh...

Moss will be suspended by the NFL...has nothing to do with court case,pending or not,this year or next.

He has admitted he took it...
