There are so many stories percolating in Washington right now, we thought we’d put them all in one tidy post. Here goes.
- Mike Shanahan wants a new quarterback, but that doesn’t mean the end of Jason Campbell as a Redskin. Campbell is likely to be a restricted free agent, and Shanahan is expected to to bring Campbell back for one more season to pair with a rookie. It’s for a low cost, so why not?
- Shanahan will meet with the press at 2PM ET. We’ll have it covered here on PFT.
- Chris Cooley, the team’s Pro Bowl tight end, also questioned the team offensive leadership. Even if he was more subtle than Clinton Portis.
- Jerry Gray has told people he’s optimistic about sticking, and getting an upgrade to defensive coordinator. Mike Zimmer and Jim Haslett have been floated as possibilities. If Gray gets the job, it will raise more questions about his “pre-interview” for the head coaching job.
- Kyle Shanahan has agreed to become his father’s offensive coordinator, as expected. It’s reportedly been a done deal for weeks.
