The Redskins acquired Moss via trade on March 9, 2005.

Moss has appeared in 187 career regular season games with 135 starts, compiling 722 receptions for 10,167 yards (14.1 avg.) with 66 receiving touchdowns.

Since joining the Redskins in 2005, Moss has played 136 regular season games in burgundy and gold with 106 starts.

He ranks third in team history in career receptions (571), fourth in career receiving yards (7,751) and seventh in receiving touchdowns (47).

Moss played collegiately at Miami (Fla.) from 1997-2000, appearing in 41 games with 31 starts and setting Miami's all-time record with 2,546 receiving yards.

As a senior in 2000, he became the first player to earn Big East Offensive and Special Teams Player of the Year honors in the same season.

Moss, 34, attended Carol City (Fla.) H.S., where he was a standout multi-sport athlete in football and track. He was born on June 1, 1979.
