Washington To Consider Marty Hurney?

Marty Hurney is out of work, but it might not be long before he finds his next job. The former Panthers GM will be a candidate to run Washington’s front office if the team decides to open up the position, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter).

Hurney, of course, has history with Washington head coach Ron Rivera dating back to their Carolina days. Hurney partnered with Rivera during the coach’s early Panthers seasons and returned to the front office as Rivera’s GM from 2017-2019. A reunion would make plenty of sense, though it would likely still leave Rivera with final say over the 53-man roster.

As Rapoport notes, the timing of Hurney’s dismissal could benefit the veteran executive. Now, he gets a head start on talks with the Washington Football Team. If they do choose to hire a GM in this cycle, they’ll join the Panthers, Falcons, Jaguars, Lions, and Texans in the market. In the next few weeks, we may see a few more NFL teams added to that list.

In the meantime, Washington will prepare to face the Panthers (oddly enough) in Week 16.

      Looks like another pointless comment. It’s not like this site “made up” news to generate another article. This is a pro football rumor, so I believe it is correct for Zach Links to report it

        It’s wasn’t news or a rumor. Just throwing out guesses isn’t real journalism, even for a rumor site. Plus why post a 2nd article about Hurney? Just seems like Zach has an article quota to meet.

          You seem very passionate about an article and topic that you don’t seem to care about. Go read something more relevant to you. I found this article interesting

    This was not a figment of Zach’s imagination. It came from an alternate source. Was it necessary to write a second article about Hurney? Perhaps not, but it’s not just a guess. Besides, why complain? Does posting more articles on a FREE website really bother you that much?

      You are considering that a rumor or news? I come here legitimate news or rumors, not Zach’s poor attempt at journalism.

        The hard news is that Hurney was just fired and is available. The soft news or rumor is that Washington is interested in hiring him.
