Bruce Allen Replaces Vinny Cerrato as Washington GM: Bruce Allen, the former top exec of the Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers and son of coach George Allen, has become the general manager of Washington's NFL team hours after Vinny Cerrato offered his resignation. The suddenness of the move has some journalists questioning if the team broke the Rooney Rule.

I'm not excited about the hire. Bruce Allen loved the aging veteran when he was GM of the Bucs.

And, the Redskins of all teams with their shameful history of race relations should be conscious of the goals that the other owners were trying to achieve by implementing the Rooney Rule.
