Would Santana Moss Improve Raiders?

When the Washington Redskins hit the salary ceiling in 2009, they had to rewrite wide receiver Santana Moss' contract. And now that bill comes due, according to FootballNewsNow.com.
On Friday, Moss will be a free agent. And the Oakland Raiders (or at least blog sites like BleacherReport.com) have their eyes on this deep-threat prize.
Moss played in all 16 games last season, setting career-best numbers in receptions and yards, with six touchdowns.
He's an 11-year pro, who would provide a little leadership for a younger receiving corps.
And if Moss does migrate West, it'd be like getting the band back together: quarterback Jason Campbell was last with the Redskins, as well.
