TE - WAS - IR
Week 3 Outlook
The Washington Football Team has waived LSU TE Thaddeus Moss, son of hall-of-famer Randy Moss.
Moss was reported as struggling in the early part of training camp, and he couldn’t quite hang on to a roster spot with the Washington Football Team. He’ll look to get another opportunity with another team in the future, but for now, he’s unemployed.
Rookie tight end Thaddeus Moss is struggling early in training camp practices and "got an earful" from tight ends coach Pete Hoener on Wednesday, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports.
Moss somewhat surprisingly went undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft before signing with Washington as an undrafted free agent. While Washington doesn't exactly have a deep room at tight end, Moss will have to beat out Jeremy Sprinkle, Logan Thomas, and Richard Rogers for a roster spot and playing time. Though it's still early, he doesn't appear to be off to a good start.
The Redskins are signing former LSU TE Thaddeus Moss, son of Hall of Famer Randy Moss.
Moss required surgery to address a right fracture in his foot. The timetable for this sort of injury is six-to-eight weeks. Moss was projected to be a Day 3 pick, but ended up not being drafted. He will look to make the roster once training camp starts.
After medical testing at the NFL Combine, Moss was diagnosed with a Jones fracture in his foot and will undergo surgery.
Thaddeus Moss, the son of Randy Moss, wasn't able to participate in any of the drills at The NFL Combine. We now know that this was due to a Jones fracture, which he'll have surgery on here shortly. Moss will drop a bit in rankings because of it, but don't forget about him in this TE class. He could make a big impact for fantasy football when he's back and healthy.
