Sources: ‘Bruce Needs a Yes Man,' McCloughan on the Way Out

Rumors are flying that the Washington Redskins are mulling replacements for General Manager Scot McCloughan.

At this time, McCloughan is still a team employee, which is why he's stayed silent, but multiple sources said he knows he's on his way out. In fact, he's seen this coming for months.

Rumors of a replacement were swirling at the Senior Bowl.

One source, who spends a lot of time at Redskins Park, insists this isn't about drinking, but he "wasn't surprised by the rumors based on his past."

"(Team President) Bruce (Allen) needs a yes man," he said.

Before taking the job, McCloughan opened up to ESPN about his alcohol abuse in December 2014.
