A source in agent Drew Rosenhaus’ office confirmed a report on ProFootballTalk.com that the Redskins saved $1.7477 million by restructuring receiver Santana Moss’ contract. That’s more than enough to pay for the salary cap acceleration incurred when the Redskins cut offensive tackle Jon Jansen last Friday.
The Redskins added three seasons to the 30-year-old Moss’ contract, extending him through 2013. Moss’ base salaries for this year and next were basically converted into signing bonus, guaranteeing him nearly $6.3 million.
