Redskins Hire Bruce Allen!

Florio Reports via PFT,

Skins hire Buccs old GM, Bruce Allen.

The Washington Redskins have moved very fast in filling the void left by today’s resignation of Vinny Cerrato.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Redskins have hired Bruce Allen as their executive vice president and general manager.

A press conference is expected this afternoon to make the hiring official.

It is not clear how the Redskins could hire Allen so quickly without running afoul of the league’s Rooney Rule. The Redskins may have quietly interviewed a minority candidate, or they may have given Allen a title that doesn’t require Rooney Rule compliance.

This is great news for the Glazers and Buccs fans and a wonderful business move by Dan Snyder the Redskins owner. The Glazers no longer have to pay out his contract (around $2 mil) and Allen has a past with old Buccs HC Jon Gruden, whom is still on the Buccs payroll. Don’t be surprised if┬áZorn finds the door and Gruden makes an appearance as HC for the troubled Skins. These guys have proven they can build offensive lines and will take shots in the 1st round no problem. The Skins could use some help.
