Either reporters in the Washington area are in on some type of joke or the former Washington Redskins are going to be making the news for something way worse then their nickname that they finally retired.
Over the past few days, reporters have taken to Twitter to allude on bad news headed our way about Washington.
JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington dropped this news:
Julie Donaldson of NBC Sports Washington is also aware of the upcoming news:
Scott Abraham of ABC News in Washington:
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports:
Chick Hernandez of NBC Sports Washington:
As that last tweet alluded to, it was a few days ago when Washington fired two key employees in their pro scouting department. Director of pro personnel Alex Santos and assistant director of pro personnel Richard Mann II were let go by the team on Saturday.
They were in charge of coordinating advance scouting of opponents and evaluating potential free agents less than a month before the start of training camp.
No reason was given, but it appears something bad was going on behind closed doors and we will be finding out pretty soon.
Santos was with the team for more than 14 years while Mann was a pro scout for seven years before being promoted to assistant director of pro scouting in 2017.
