WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- As players were sprinting off following
Thursday's very first 2012 training camp walk through, I was lucky
enough to grab Santana Moss for two minutes.
The first thing I blatantly observed from the Redskins offense was a serious increase in the amount of shotgun and pistol plays. I asked Moss about this development, and though he tried to be as cryptic as possible, the change is apparent.
"That stuff you'll have to keep watching man
(smiles). There's not much else I can tell you. You have to play
according to who you have," said the 12-year veteran. "We have to take
advantage of who we have at quarterback."
Moss has reported to
camp with a significant weight loss, one that some are indicating could
revitalize his career. Last season Moss played at 205 pounds and caught just four touchdown passes on 46 receptions. This
season? He's listed at 189 lbs. Keep in mind it was just an early
walk-through, but Moss looked sharp lined up in the slot receiver
"It was a change of diet, it was working out. It was just doing stuff I had done earlier in my career," the 33-year-old said. "I played three years heavy as hell. I wanted the weight off of me, so I did it."
Moss raved about the few days he and some fellow receivers spent with
Robert Griffin III in Waco, Texas -- from a football standpoint and in
terms of team bonding.
"Basically we got all these new guys on the
team and it was the perfect way to get to know everybody. It was giving
[Griffin] a little [idea] about who he has on the outside. It was everything I imagined and a little more."
