The Redskins did not shock anyone by pursuing the receiver position on the opening day of free agency. However, signing a 34-year old slot specialist was a surprise. I’m glad the team re-signed Santana Moss. Here are five reasons why.

In 1990, the Washington Redskins signed a towering free agent named James “Jumpy” Geathers to add defensive line depth.
On Thursday, the team looked to the next generation of the Geathers family, signing nephew Clifton Geathers to play defensive end.
At 6-foot-7 and 290 pounds, Jumpy Geathers’ biggest asset was country strength he developed in the tobacco fields of rural Georgetown County, S.C. Geathers spent three seasons of a 13-year professional career in Washington, where he patented the “forklift” move and contributed to a Super Bowl XXVI championship.
Clifton said any moves he learned from his uncle are family secrets. One family heirloom is plain to see. At 6-foot-8, Clifton inherited the height gene.
