OPEN THREAD: Should the Redskins bring back Moss?

Your Monday morning open thread:

According to media reports, the Redskins have started contract talks with pending free agent wide receiver Santana Moss. While it should be noted that contract negotiations do not always result in a contract, there must be some level of interest in keeping him. He was the Redskins' top receiver for most of the time he's been here and when he hasn't been he has been in the top two or three. Last year he was third on the team with 42 receptions for 452 yards and two touchdowns.

I think that anyone reading this thread appreciates Moss' contributions. But he will be 35 on June 1. His best days are clearly behind him. Is it time for the Redskins to move on?

Many on my Twitter timeline have said that the Redskins need to get younger and faster at the position. And I think everyone can agree on that as well. But, as of this moment, the team doesn't know if it will be able to sign an upgrade in free agency or if they can get a receiver who can contribute right away in the draft. And, let's not forget that Leonard Hankerson is recovering from  What happens if they let Moss walk and there's nobody on the roster who can replace his production? 

So should the Redskins say goodbye to Moss? Or keep him around as an insurance policy?
