Less than an hour after Adam Schefter reported that NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock is a candidate for the Redskins general manager job, Mayock himself issued a statement denying "official contact" with the team. 

The language here is not an unequivocal denial that he is under consideration for the position. It's possible that Washington has expressed interest without official contact or an interview, or that the team has been in contact with Mayock's agent. 

But it's also possible that there's nothing here, which would be unusual for a Schefter report. 

The general manager position is open after the Redskins fired Scot McCloughan yesterday.
