I've heard in recent years several teams have strongly considered Anderson for team president type positions. Could be where he ends up
Anderson said he and Commish Goodell had been discussing it for several weeks and he wants to pursue "new and varied challenges." ...
Spoke to NFL VP of football ops Ray Anderson, who the league announced will be stepping down after the season. Called it "mutual decision"
I'm no PR expert, heavens knows, but if this was a move the owner championed, could have easily nipped this tempest in the bud days ago
If Shanahan has Snyder's blessing for benching, as he says, one might think Skins would have a brief statement from the owner prepared, no?
Shanahan says if Snyder and GM Bruce Allen weren't 100% behind the decision to shelve RGIII it wouldn't have been made

RT @calvinwatkins: Redskins owner Daniel Snyder declined to take questions here at NFL owners meetings. "I'm here for owners meetings."
Shanahan says he talked to Snyder a week ago about the beating RGIII was taking. "We felt the best thing for Robert was not to play him."
RGIII says he hasn't talked to Dan Snyder about his benching and doesn't plan to
Asked if he believes Shanahan is truly benching him to protect him, Griffin doesn't respond directly, says he has to respect authority
He'll work his tail off and look at it as a wonderful opportunity, but he too is a pawn in this standoff between a coach and an owner
Feel sorry for Kirk Cousins, a truly great kid with plenty of promise, for getting his chance to start under these warped circumstances...
RT @MikeJonesWaPo: KShanahan continued: "...unless [he] doesn’t want to play the guy ... because he really has another agenda."
RT @MikeJonesWaPo: KShanahan last week: "I've never heard a player say he’s fine, Dr. say he’s fine & then the coach say he’s not ...
RT @HTTR24_7: I'm just glad the NFL trade deadline has passed.. Shanny has gone rogue
Almost time to jump on with @kjrmitch. hope he isn't overreacting to a rare Seahawks loss
