Redskins team president Bruce Allen made clear at the NFL League Meetings that former general manager Scot McCloughan is free to work elsewhere in the NFL. Now it appears that's happening.
Mike Garafalo of the NFL Network reported that McCloughan has advised multiple NFL teams in advance of the draft.
McCloughan was let go by the Redskins in early March after a tumultuous few months following the 2016 season. A slew of reports pegged the GM's ouster on a combination of a power struggle with Allen and other outlets suggested problems with alcohol played a part in his firing.

In previous stops with the 49ers and Seahawks, alcohol played a large role in McCloughan's removal from front office jobs. Before he was hired by Washington in 2015, McCloughan was operating his own scouting service.
Redskins director of college scouting Scott Campbell explained earlier this week that McCloughan played a part in setting the Redskins draft board. Campbell added, however, that much information on the board has changed since McCloughan was fired.
Outside of a small circle of people, it's hard to know exactly what transpired that led to McCloughan's firing. Regardless, it's not a surprise that he is back providing information about college prospects.

In Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season, Terry McLaurin introduced himself to opposing defenses, specifically the Eagles secondary, as he racked up 125 yards and a touchdown on five receptions.
Since then, the rookie receiver has continued to showcase his talent, establishing himself as Washington's No. 1 target and a pass catcher that all teams should fear. Through incredible catches and strong runs after the receptions, he's shown he can do it all.
So with the Eagles coming to town in Week 15 for a divisional battle, what would he do for an encore? It didn't take long for Philadelphia to find out.
Catching a pass from Dwayne Haskins on a slant, McLaurin turned upfield, left the secondary in the dust and sprinted into the end zone for a 75-yard score to give Washington a 7-3 lead in the first half.
Not only did the touchdown show McLaurin's ability, but it also displayed the growing connection between him and Haskins. Teammates in college, the two are still continuing to get more comfortable with each other. Plays like that are a sign of things to come, something that will please Redskins fans and even get a smile out of their former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who was reportedly in attendance for Sunday's game.
If McLaurin is doing this in his rookie year, the Eagles are not going to enjoy the coming years.
