Dan Snyder evaluating Bruce Allen’s status with the Redskins
The Washington Redskins are heading towards the end of having yet another dreadful season. As a result, Dan Snyder will be evaluating Bruce Allen’s status with Washington as the season comes to a close.
Allen became the executive vice president and general manager of the Redskins in 2010. Since then, he has worked his way up to being the team’s president in 2014, as well as staying on as general manager.
In the 10 years that Allen has held a spot in Washington’s front office, Washington has had seven losing seasons. This year will also be the third consecutive year that the Redskins will end the season with a record under .500.
Earlier this season, Snyder decided to move on from Jay Gruden at head coach. Besides the coaching issues, the Redskins have had turmoil involving left tackle Trent Williams’ health and whether or not Dwayne Haskins should be the starting quarterback.
Due to the team’s recent lack of success, a change needs to be made to turn things around. But Snyder ridding of Allen in the front office would be a seismic shift of power for the Redskins.
Before joining the Redskins’ executive group, Allen had some success as an executive with the Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to transition that success to the Redskins over the years.
Allen’s connection with the Redskins spans over three decades when he was a ball boy for the team while his father, George Allen, was the head coach. Nevertheless, his time in the nation’s capital could be coming to an end after the 2019 season concludes.
