Al Galdi of The Morning Blitz examines why has Doug Williams received a contract extension…

On Tuesday, June 25th, that Redskins senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams had received a contract extension in the form of a rollover of his current contract for another year.  Williams signed a three-year contract on June 13, 2017 when he was elevated to his current role.  The rollover year now extends that contract through 2021.  If all goes well, the same will happen again for Williams a year from now, unless he decides to hold out for a new deal or a positional promotion.
What Doug Williams getting a contract extension says…
Galdi explains why the extension for Doug is another sign that Dan Snyder isn’t nearly as fed up as many Redskins fans. Why hasn’t a third consecutive playoff-less season for the Redskins in 2018 would result in major change?  That clearly didn’t happen.  Instead, guys are getting promoted/extended…
Bruce Allen has not only been retained as team president, he has been promoted; Redskins insider Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reported on January 11th that Bruce was getting an expanded role in having “total control over the team’s football and business operations.”  This is the second time that Bruce has received a promotion off a bad season.  It was on May 26, 2014 that the Redskins officially announced that Bruce Allen had been promoted to team president despite the team coming off what remains to me the worst season in Redskins history, the hideous 2013 campaign in which the Skins went 3-13 with all kinds of dysfunction in Mike Shanahan’s final season with the team.  This coming season will be Bruce’s 10th with the Redskins.  How many other major executives in modern NFL history have seen a 10th season with a team with a record of 59-84-1 or worse?
Now we have Doug getting this extension…
