As all indications continue to point to Mike Shanahan being the next coach of the Redskins, we’re told that Shanahan’s contract with the team is ready to go.
One league source thinks the contract may already be signed.
“He has agreed to everything,” the source said. “Heck, he picked out the G.M.”
But until Shanahan actually signs, he is free to go elsewhere if he chooses. And as Adam Schefter of ESPN pointed out during Sunday morning’s SportsCenter, Shanahan believes in always keeping his options open.
Still, if another team is going to get into the Shanahan bidding, that team needs to move quickly. We fully expect coach Jim Zorn to be fired when the team’s plane returns home after a Week 17 game in San Diego — if Zorn even makes it that far.
