Gus Bradley interviews for Redskins defensive coordinator job

Gus Bradley interviews for Redskins defensive coordinator job

The Redskins interviewed former Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley for their vacant defensive coordinator position today.

Bradley, who was the defensive coordinator of the Seahawks before moving on to take the head job in Jacksonville in 2013, was at Redskins Park for the interview. Some in the media have reported that he is the favorite to get the job.

With the Seahawks, Bradley was coordinator of one of the league’s top defenses in 2011 and 2012. The Legion of Boom, Seattle’s star-studded defensive backfield, became one of the most difficult units in the league to pass against.

Bradley coached in college for 16 seasons before making the jump to the NFL. Jon Gruden hired him as an assistant coach, adding him to a staff that also had Jay Gruden working as an offensive assistant. The general manager of the team was current Redskins team president Bruce Allen.

Bradley would be free to be hired by the Redskins at any time as the Jaguars let Bradley go with two games remaining in this past season. It is not yet known if any further interviews are scheduled.

Redskins' draft pick Ryan Anderson just had a baby (partly) named after him

Redskins' draft pick Ryan Anderson just had a baby (partly) named after him

Here's an updated look at second-round pick Ryan Anderson's stats since the Redskins drafted him back in late April: zero career NFL tackles, one career baby named partly after him.

On Tuesday, Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt honored Anderson and fellow ex-Crimson Tide linebacker Reuben Foster by combining their last names and making that combination his newborn son's middle name.

Everyone please say hello to Flynt Anderson-Foster Pruitt:

The gesture was not lost on Anderson, who said on Instagram that the "little guy will always hold a special place" in his heart:

One gets the sense that Anderson, who comes across as a very intense man and one whose breakfast probably consists of a bowl of motor oil, doesn't use heart emojis very often. Therefore, since he used some in his Instagram caption, you know Pruitt's decision meant a lot to him.

Jordan Reed missed OTAs Tuesday but was still putting in work with Chad Johnson

Jordan Reed missed OTAs Tuesday but was still putting in work with Chad Johnson

Jordan Reed was reportedly absent from the Redskins' voluntary OTA practice on Tuesday, but a picture on Twitter shows the stud tight end didn't skip the session just so he could lounge around on the couch.

Chad Johnson, expert on all things such as repeatedly hauling in footballs and transforming the end zone into the 18th green at Augusta National, posted this photo of him, Reed and one other fellow, presumably following a workout:

For those who want to freak out that Washington's top offensive threat didn't show up in Ashburn for his team's OTAs, it's important to remember that 1) it was not required and 2) judging by that snapshot, Reed has had no trouble staying in football shape on his own or finding people to hone his craft with.

By the way, peep that hashtag from Johnson. When a six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro uses the word legendary to refer to someone else, that someone else should feel pretty good about himself.
