NFLN Adds Another Insider

Redskins beat writer Jason La Canfora of the Washington Post is heading to NFL Network, a source with knowledge of the situation tells us. La Canfora will join a stable of NFL reporters that has been filling the shoes previously occupied by Adam Schefter. Schefter, though still technically employed by NFLN, will be moving to ESPN after his contract expires in August. Because the network is owned by the league, it’s essentially owned in equally-sized 1/32nd chunks by the teams. And so, in a roundabout way, La Canfora will be working for the franchise whose Executive V.P. of Football Operations he accused of slander last year. “He is a making a mockery of fact and reality and trying to play people for fools,” La Canfora wrote in an e-mail regarding a dispute with Vinny Cerrato over the question of whether his comments about former Raiders coach Lane Kiffin constituted tampering. “It’s [a] pathetic attempt to slander me,” La Canfora said, “but not surprising in the least given who it is coming from.” So now La Canfora and Cerrato are, in a weird sort of way, colleagues.
