Eric Schaffer leaving Washington now

Eric Schaffer was leaving Washington in May anyway, so he and the team found a way to accelerate the timetable.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the team and the senior vice president of football operations and general counsel have “agreed to mutually part ways now instead of May.”

Since the move was inevitable, it makes sense to let it happen now, as they rebuild the coaching staff and front office around new head coach Ron Rivera.

Along those lines, PFT has learned that they’re expected to hire Rob Rogers, who worked for the Panthers as their cap guy for years, carrying the title of executive director of player finance and football research.

The Harvard-educated Rogers began with the Panthers in 1995 and worked his way up through the organization.

  1. Erm. Not super enthused with this development. The Allen ouster was great. The Rivera hire was great. The training/medical changes were great. Del Rio in for Manusky was great. A lot of it since then however has been just kind of importing low wattage former Panthers our favorite incumbent staffers like KOC and Schaffer depart.

  2. My jaws been tight every since the Redskins fired Charley Casserly but the recent changes to,,,way upgrade i might add,,,changes that we made recently seems to have the right pieces in the right places,,,i haven’t seen a Redskins coaching staff this well stocked since the early Joe Gibbs era,,,Synder bruh i think you finally hit a home run,,,
