Laveranues Coles and Rod Gardner wanted out and the team acquiesced by trading both players. In return for Coles, the Redskins hit paydirt with Santana Moss, who had 84 catches and made the Pro Bowl. In return for Gardner, they got Carolina's seventh-round draft pick this year. But as the NFL Scouting Combine continues today at RCA Dome, the Redskins -- at least in the eyes of many -- still need help at receiver. David Patten battled a knee injury and was limited to 22 catches, James Thrash is more of a special teams player/No. 4 receiver and the warranty on Taylor Jacobs should be expired. Limited cap space and a thin free agent class leave it unlikely the Redskins will acquire a receiver next weekend. That leaves the draft for the Redskins to find a player who will bring size to the team. Moss and Patten are both 5-foot-10. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
