Redskins bringing legal counsel for culture ‘deep dive’ following organization’s firings

Dan Snyder, Redskins

Washington’s NFL franchise has made a lot of headlines these past few months, and although it seems like the team’s controversial “Redskins” name is finally going to be retired and changed, they might be in for another month or so of contention and headaches.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter recently tweeted about what can possibly be going down in Washington.

In his post, Schefter reported that Washington’s NFL club had hired D.C. attorney Beth Wilkinson to “review the organization’s protocol” as per his sources. The ESPN insider added that while Wilkinson was hired specifically to look into the organization’s “past culture,” it appears this has unsettled and angered some team officials.

Schefter continued in a later tweet stating that the Washington Post is in the process of writing a story centered around the culture that his existed within the soon-to-be former Redskins.

In the past week alone, sever long-time members left the Washington organization without much anticipation. Among does let go were Director of Pro Personnel Alex Santos and Assistant Director of Pro Personnel Richard Mann III. The two had both spent more than a decade in Washington, with Santos being hired in 2005 and Mann following him in 2009.

Another key figure who left was broadcaster Larry Michael, who has been the voice of the Washington team’s radio broadcasts for over 16 years. Michael also served as a Senior Vice President and Chief Content Officer. He is a known ally and friend of Washington team owner Dan Snyder and ex-president Bruce Allen.
