The Redskins have promoted general manager Bruce Allen to the role of team president, the team announced today (via Twitter). Allen will remain in his previous role, as well.
The 57-year-old was hired in late 2009 after spending 13 years with the Buccaneers and Raiders. According to Zac Boyer of the Washington Times, it is unclear how much his role will change, but a team spokesman said that he “oversees the organization.”
Let’s take a look at some more Redskins notes…
- As OTAs are about to begin, the Redskins have a full, 90-man roster, Mike Jones of the Washington Post points out. The team also has about $2.34MM in available cap space.
- Guard Adam Gettis, the team’s fifth-round pick in 2012, “could find himself in a pickle” regarding his roster spot, writes Jones in a separate article.
- Santana Moss is returning on a non-guaranteed deal and “will work to compete at whatever spot he can,” says Jones. Rookies Ryan Grant and Cody Hoffman will force some of the veterans (including Moss, Aldrick Robinson and Leonard Hankerson) to fight for their roster spots.
- Running backs Roy Helu and Evan Royster could find their jobs in jeopardy, Jones adds. At kicker, the team will also go with “the best leg,” meaning only one of Kai Forbath and Zach Hocker will stick around.
