Moss in elite company

After Santana Moss sparked the Redskins with a 77-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown that gave them the lead in the fourth quarter against Atlanta on Sunday, he quietly reached a milestone.

Moss’ next reception, a ho-hum 3-yarder, was his 500th with the Redskins. That put him among elite company.

Only three other players have caught 500 passes with the Redskins: Gary Clark (549) and Hall of Famers Art Monk (888) and Charley Taylor (649).

“I’m happy because a lot of people don’t get the opportunity,” Moss said. “I’m humbled, too, at the same time. I appreciate the honor. I appreciate being up there with those guys, but I know I’m still out here doing it.”

Moss joined the Redskins in 2005. In four years with the New York Jets prior to that, he had 151 receptions. For his career, he has 9,319 receiving yards and 58 receiving touchdowns.

Addison gets a shot

Ranked 24th in the NFL in sacks and wanting more pressure on opposing quarterbacks, the Redskins likely will be trying a lot to improve in that area.

One long-term way could be with the help of linebacker Mario Addison, signed off the Indianapolis Colts practice squad.

Addison might not be active Sunday against the Vikings after replacing Markus White on the roster, but he knows what the Redskins want from him.

“They told me they wanted me to get out to the quarterback,” the 25-year-old said. “I’ve got great speed, I’ve got a good first step and I’m able to do that.”
