WASHINGTON (WAFB) - The Washington Football Team has waived former LSU tight end Thaddeus Moss but the organization added the move is procedural and he will be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Moss agreed to terms with Washington as an undrafted rookie free agent.

Doctors at the NFL Combine discovered a fracture in his right foot during the medical examination on February 27 and he was not allowed to participate in any drills. He later had surgery.

The 6-foot-2, 250-pounder from Charlotte, NC had the most productive season for a tight end in school history. He finished the season with 47 catches for 570 yards and four touchdowns. He scored two touchdowns in the College Football Playoff National Championship against Clemson.

Prior to LSU, he spent his freshman year at NC State. He recorded six catches for 49 yards and one touchdown. He sat out his sophomore season because of NCAA transfer rules and redshirted in 2018 due to a left foot injury.

He is the son of Hall of Famer Randy Moss, one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history.
