By now, you may have heard that the Washington Redskins have a new general manager in Scot McCloughan, a highly respected talent evaluator. Bruce Allen, who had previously served in that role, will retain his title as team president. 

It has been viewed as a shrewd move by Washington's front office, an adjective rarely used to describe anything related to owner Daniel Snyder and his colleagues. According to a tweet from ESPN's Ed Werder, Snyder is at least somewhat self-aware.

NFL Network is reporting that McCloughan will have the final word on all personnel-related decisions. Baby steps, I suppose.
