Moss played in 12 games last season, the fewest since his rookie season in 2001. He had 46 receptions for 584 yards. In his first season under head coach Mike Shanahan, Moss had 93 catches for 1,115 yards.
Part of the reason for the drop-off in his numbers was due to the presence of Jabar Gaffney, who took Moss' place as the No. 1 option at receiver. Gaffney had the best season of his career, but he was released by the team after the season.
It was thought that the Redskins might release Moss before the season started, but it would seem that they want him to play a slightly different role this year.
However, unlike last year, Moss has a good opportunity to make a comeback and have a great year this season, thanks to the pieces the team has put around him.
Here are the reasons why Moss will have an epic year in 2012.
