Washington has Antonio Brown and Chad Morton competing for return duties. But the Redskins will take advantage of Moss' speed and punt return ability. He's averaged 11.9 yards on 88 career punt returns. Special teams coach Danny Smith will make that decision.
''Certainly he'll spend some time back there in practice,'' Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said. ''We'll look at the whole picture there. We're always ready to use someone back there who can hit a home run for you.''
Moss begged off punt returns midway through last season because of a sore hamstring. But he'd still return an occasional punt.
''I just like to make a difference,'' Moss said. ''Put me on special teams, I'll do that. Put me on offense, I'll do that.''
