Sources: Redskins team president Bruce Allen will be out of running football ops by Monday

Sources: Redskins team president Bruce Allen will be out of running football ops by Monday

DALLAS — Redskins team president Bruce Allen will be out of running the team’s football operations by Monday, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation informed NBC Sports Washington.

A Redskins spokesperson was not immediately available for comment. The team is traveling to Dallas for its final game of the season.

This is a developing story as Allen’s role within the organization runs beyond just football and it’s unclear what other changes will happen but the immediate news is that after a decade in charge of the Redskins on the field Allen will no longer serve that role. 

In the 10 years since Allen was hired the Redskins have more than 100 losses and no playoff victories. 

The team has fired two head coaches - Mike Shanahan and Jay Gruden - and has started more than 10 different quarterbacks. 

There have been plenty of ugly off-field situations as well, most notably the ouster of former general manager Scot McCloughan and the holdout of Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams following a health scare.

The Redskins are set to take on the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon with Bill Callahan installed as interim head coach. 

Win or lose, this will be the team’s worst season since 2014.

Fan frustration with Allen reached a boiling point this season as FedEx Field became a national punchline. While some diehards fans remain, countless tickets went unused or were taken by visiting fans. 

Multiple national news outlets ran stories about cheap ticket prices and how the Redskins “plummeted to rock bottom.”

Sources have told NBC Sports Washington earlier this week that team owner Dan Snyder has been working with a select group of football advisers to determine his next steps with the team and that Snyder wants to move quickly. Allen was not included in Snyder’s advisory board.

The Redskins have been connected with former NFL head coaches Ron Rivera and Marvin Lewis as well as current Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. Former college coach Urban Meyer has also been linked with the Redskins job, and that could be in an executive capacity, not just as a coach. 

CBS Sports also reported that Snyder has done "research" on former Texans GM Rick Smith and former Washington executive Louis Riddick, now an ESPN analyst. 

It's unclear what other changes could come to the Redskins front office. 

Allen's removal could lead to internal promotions for other employees or the addition of an outside hire. 

Regardless, for years it seemed that Allen would keep his position atop the Redskins football organization, but eventually, everything ends. 

Come Monday, at least the football operations part, ends for Allen.

2020 NFL Draft to include virtual moment of draft picks meeting Roger Goodell

2020 NFL Draft to include virtual moment of draft picks meeting Roger Goodell

The coronavirus pandemic will prevent 2020 NFL Draft picks from experiencing the post-selection handshake with commissioner Roger Goodell, but that doesn't mean this year's draft will be completely devoid of that moment. 

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, EA Sports will create a virtual moment featuring Goodell shaking hands with each team's first-round pick to go along with a remote draft. 

In order to do this as accurately as possible, EA Sports reached out to a number of likely first-round picks to get an idea of how they planned to greet the commissioner the moment they were drafted. 

Each prospect will also choose a high school to receive a $2,500 grant toward its football program. 

Whether the Redskins draft Chase Young, Tua Tagovailoa or trade back, Washington fans will be able to see their newest addition virtually walk across the draft stage.

The 2020 NFL Draft will be anything but normal compared to recent years, though it'll at least have a few items like this to make it an enjoyable night for everyone involved.

How to watch NBC Sports Washington's Mock Draft Mondays

How to watch NBC Sports Washington's Mock Draft Mondays

It's hard to believe, but the NFL Draft is less than three weeks away.

To break everything down, both the Redskins and Ravens crews here at NBC Sports Washington will debut a special show, Mock Draft Monday's presented by Papa John's, on Monday, April 6.

The Redskins hold the second overall pick in this year's draft, and many expect them to select Ohio State pass rusher Chase Young. Several draft experts have deemed Young as a generational talent and a can't miss prospect. But there's also the option of trading down in the draft to acquire more assets, and a QB-needy team like the Miami Dolphins at No. 5 could be a potential trade partner.

In addition to discussing what the Redskins will do with the No. 2 pick, the Redskins Talk crew will speak with newly-signed cornerback Kendall Fuller, Super Bowl-winning QB Joe Theismann, and Miami Dolphins beat reporter Safid Deen, who discusses a potential trade with Washington.

A total of 26 picks in the first round will pass between when the Redskins make their choice at No. 2 and when the Baltimore Ravens make their selection at No. 28, barring neither side makes a trade. The Ravens have multiple positions of need, such as both the interior offensive and defensive line, as well as wide receiver. What Baltimore will do at the end of the first round remains a mystery.

In NBC Sports Washington's latest Mock Draft, the Redskins unsurprisingly select Young at No. 2 while the Ravens nab Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray.
