Cerrato departure fuels Shanahan speculation, too

Though the timing of the resignation of Redskins executive V.P. of football operations Vinny Cerrato has prompted speculation that owner Daniel Snyder wants a ticket to the Big Show, other league insiders believe that Snyder has a different target.

“Holmgren’s not going there,” one league source opined to us this morning.  “It’s [Mike] Shanahan.  The timing is just coincidental.  Vinny was told that Shanny didn’t want him, so he resigned.”

Whether it’s Mike Holmgren, Mike Shanahan, or someone else remains to be seen.

In that regard, stay tuned.  Our pal Jay Glazer of FOX might have something interesting soon.
