Bruce Allen: Redskins 'getting close' to finalizing front-office plan

Months after the Washington Redskins fired general manager Scot McCloughan, the position remains unfilled.

Redskins president Bruce Allen told reporters the team is getting close to adding to their front office.

"We met with over a dozen people from the outside, talked to everybody on the inside. We're getting close to having a final plan," Allen said, via the Washington Post.

Allen danced around the question of whether the team would hire an actual GM or simply add to the player personnel and scouting staff.

"From the beginning, you know, I'm real proud of what the guys did this year in free agency and in this draft," Allen said. "As I've said, we have a lot of quality people who performed well under some tough situations this year. This draft class, the excitement it's brought to our locker room, it's exciting, so we're looking to add to [the front office], we'll see who that is."

That is some grade-A evasive maneuvering from Allen.

As NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport noted, it would be a surprise if the Redskins hire an actual GM to replace McCloughan.

Allen noted Washington could add anywhere from one to three people to the front office in the coming weeks.
