Redskins Playbook: When to expect a new GM to replace Scot McCloughan?

Redskins Playbook: When to expect a new GM to replace Scot McCloughan?

The Redskins fired GM Scot McCloughan in early March when the 2017 NFL season technically began at the start of the free agency period. The move was made clumsily, at best, though the team was able to navigate free agency and the NFL Draft with much success.

With a few more weeks of team activities until the quietest period of the NFL calendar begins in mind-June, might the Redskins hire a new general manager?

Last week, team president Bruce Allen said the Redskins have spoken with more than 10 front office candidates and that Washington could make as many as three new hires. Allen did not provide a timeline for the moves.

Looking at the calendar, it would make sense for the Redskins to announce new hires around the conclusion of minicamp on June 15. The Redskins won't have another official team activity until training camp opens in late July in Richmond. It's also possible that new hires will be made during that quiet period, though for many, that month long period is about the only true remnant of the NFL offseason.

Don't expect a new outside hire to get the title of general manager. That seems much more likely to be an internal promotion, likely fro Eric Schaeffer, Alex Santos, Doug Williams or Scott Campbell. Washington will likely add to the front office, like Allen suggested.

After Bryce Harper punch, looking back at some recent Redskins brawls (VIDEO)

Bryce Harper charged the mound Monday, defending himself after getting beaned by San Francisco. The incident got the memory running to some of the best Redskins dustups, at least of the recent past.

  • Last December, Jordan Reed got pushed too far after the Carolina Panthers repeatedly tried to engage with the star tight end's injured shoulder. 
  • Who can forget Trent Williams giving Richard Sherman the right after the Redskins 2013 playoff loss to the Seahawks?

  • Santana Moss scrapped with Giants cornerback Corey Webster in 2009. Moss held his own, even after his helmet got ripped off.

  • Perhaps the biggest fight in recent Redskins history: Chris Baker and the Redskins fighting what seemed like the entire Eagles squad in Philadelphia after Baker delivered a big hit on Nick Foles after an interception.

  • Bonus - One more, and it was awesome. During a preseason game, John Harbaugh and Jay Gruden get into it.
