    I really don't see how you can read "confrontation" and "needed to be shaken" and don't see that as an allegation that there was friction between the two of them, even if was just for that one occurrence.

    Allen, by contrast, is not mentioned at all in that portion of the article. Breer just vaguely claims, without any actual evidence, that other people in the organization might have taken an issue with it. That could range from anyone from other players to the Washington PR staff, and for all we know, nobody cared. Breer seems to think it's "clearly" an issue but never actually states why it ought to be "clear." It's the same deal with the Cravens portion, where Breer states that some of the players were fine with it but couches the "on the other hand" portion in terms that show he has no actual proof there was even any dissent in the org.

    Which I guess means my biggest issue with the piece is that Breer is dressing up pure speculation as "reporting." This probably wouldn't garner a passing grade in an upper-level journalism class.
    I'm familiar with the Breeland story because I've seen reporting of it before. Frankly, I just glossed through it because it isn't new, unlike who was advocating for keeping Cousins or not.

    Most of the reporting on the Redskins is like this, because inside sources won't risk putting their names out for attribution.

    • And here's some Johnathan Hankins rumors:

      I was told that one of the teams on that list walked away from negotiations with Hankins when it learned his asking price was four years, $40 million with roughly $20 million guaranteed.

          • Vikings just mailing it in at this point. 8 mil for Latavius Murray? That guy hasn't done anything good in a while.

            Bleh, just skip to 2018 already so we can start over.

                      Untrue, apparently.
