Redskins To Fire Two Front Office Execs

Despite previous reports indicating Washington was planning to hire a GM after the draft, the franchise remains without one. The Ron Rivera-led team did move further away from previous regimes Sunday, however.

The Redskins are firing their top two executives in the pro personnel department, moving on from director of pro personnel Alex Santos and assistant pro personnel director Richard Mann II, Les Carpenter of the Washington Post reports.

Santos joined the franchise in 2006, before since-fired team president Bruce Allen‘s arrival, and had held the pro personnel director position since 2014. Mann resided in his post since 2017, having previously been a Redskins scout for seven years.

This will leave Washington shorthanded, for the time being, in terms of evaluating potential free agency additions going into training camp. Santos and Mann played a key role for recent Redskins teams, given the injury trouble they have run into — especially on offense.

    Just name them the Washington Whites. Then all those crying about losing the Redskins moniker can console themselves.

    There is a tremendous amount of bloat in the front office of every team in the league. Everyone is a director or assistant director of something. The original owners like George Halas would be shocked to see how large these bureaucracies have become. The owners should eliminate many of these positions before demanding players accept a unilateral pay cut.

    Washington can’t use Red Tail: The Red-tailed Hawk is said to be a protector spirit of the Cherokees and is therefore considered sacred. Tail feathers were and are used ceremonially.
    Honestly I am sure I can find something about each New name they want to change it too!
