Redskins reunion for Doug Williams seems likely

The Redskins appear close to adding to their front-office, and bringing back an old hero in the process.

According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, it appears likely that former quarterback Doug Williams is about to join the front office in some capacity.

“There’s a great possibility Doug will be going to the Redskins,” his source said. “I think there’s a very good chance of that.”

This one is connect-the-dots perfect, on many levels.

Williams worked for Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen in the Buccaneers front office previously, and has the perfect Redskins background (as Super Bowl XXII MVP).

The 58-year-old Williams has been out of football since being fired by Grambling in September.

Frankly, if all he ever did was wear team-issued gear and cut ribbons at grocery store grand openings, it would still be a good move for the Redskins. But Williams has sufficient experience that it doesn’t have to be just a ceremonial hire, but a smart one.

    Glad to see this. Williams is a class act and will help the team get better.

    Big fan of Doug Williams here. After seeing it all, maybe he and RG3 can have a chat about perspective, the media, health, sliding, etc., too.

    Grambling is a disaster. If none of that sticks to him, Williams would be a good hire.

    I would love to see Doug back in Washington! He is a character person who can add value to the team.

    Lap up that Daniel Snyder induced Kool Aid of the Redskins of yesteryear skins fans. And yes a 27 year old offensive coordinator will work out. Truly Hogs to the slaughter

    I’ll bet u dollars to donuts this hire is to help the Skins with their fake outrage problem with the team name. Have a minority in the front office to buffer and help smooth things out but I like this hire. Williams is a Redskins legend and a class act. HTTR!

    Dan Synder is a class act taking care of his old Skin players/heros (Dexter Manley comes to mind). He reminds me of the 49ers old owner Eddie DeBartalow. Once your a Redskin your a Skin for life.
