washington-redskins-logo.JPGThe Washington Redskins, the only team that really matters to our own Craig Newman, have named Bruce Allen the new executive vice president of football operations and general manager.

Allen  is the son of former Redskins coach George Allen, who coached the team from 1971-1977.

"This is an extraordinary opportunity with one of the world's most successful sports franchises," Allen said in a statement released by the team. "I love everything about this assignment; I know what it means to be dedicated to the Redskins. I can't wait to get to work."
Allen replaces Vinny Cerrato, who stepped down from the position. The 53-year-old spent 2004-2008 as Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM, a stretch which included two division titles. He was a senior executive with the Oakland Raiders from 1996-2003.
