Redskins add former Chargers GM A.J. Smith as adviser

The Redskins have hired A.J. Smith, the former General Manager of the San Diego Chargers, in an advisory role within the Front Office, according to various (confirmed) reports.

Smith was recently fired by San Diego after 10 years serving as the team’s general manager, after the team missed the playoffs for three straight seasons. However, in the 10 years that Smith was the GM, the Chargers made the playoffs in 5 of them , with double-digit wins in 4 of them. 2012, what proved to be Smith’s last season with the team, was the only year where the Chargers had less than 8 wins under Smith’s tenure.

Smith’s son, Kyle, is currently a scout for the Redskins. It was reported that A.J. Smith was going to talk to the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots for a similar position.

    Really tough to mock the REDSKINS until FA plays out, but here’s a stab in the dark.

    2 [051] – FS ERIC REID Louisiana State – 6’1″ 213; 4.53 40
    3 [085] – TE TRAVIS KELCIE Cincinnati – 6’5″ 255; 4.68 40
    4 [116] – OLB ZAVIER GOODEN Missouri – 6’2″ 234; 4.47 40
    5 [147] – WR CHRIS HARPER Kansas State – 6’1″ 230; 4.55 40
    5 [155] – CB TERRY HAWTHORNE Illinois – 6’0″ 195; 4.44 40
    6 [181] – RB ZAC STACY Vanderbilt – 5’8″ 215; 4.55 40
    7 [212] – SS COOPER TAYLOR Richmond 6’4″ 220; 4.57 40

    UFA’s

    FB/HB WILLIE CARTER -Tulsa – 6’2″ 240; 4.64 40; Excellent hands, fair rush, unknown blocker.

    Assumptions from FA

    01 – MADIEU WILLIAMS is out of Pro football
    02 – D-HALL is released
    03 – CB signed in FA
    04 – CEDRICK GRIFFIN signs elsewhere
    05 – LONDON FLETCHER is given a new 2-year contract at 4 million in 2013
    06 – LO-A is resigned
    07 – BRYAN KEHL signs elsewhere
    08 – CHRIS WILSON signs elsewhere
    09 – ADAM CARRIKER is released
    10 – KEDRICK GOLSTON re-signs
    11 – KENTWAN BALMER signs elsewhere
    12 – REX GROSSMAN is signed for 1 million 1 year.
    13 – SANTANA MOSS is released
    14 – FRED DAVIS signs elsewhere
    15 – CHRIS COOLEY is out of Pro football
    16 – RFA’s PAULSEN, SUNDBERG, YOUNG, JACKSON, and BAKER are resigned
    17 – TONY PASHOS is signed
    18 – TYLER POLUMBUS is re-signed
    19 – KORY LICHTENSTEIGER re-signs
    20 – JORDAN BLACK sign elsewhere
    21 – SAV ROCCA is re-signed
    22 – BRANDON BANKS is not offered.

    And TANARD JACKSON, I have NO idea.

    Anyway that’s a boat-load of assuming, and you know how that is, but that’s my take before the deals hit the fan. All the picks and personnel however are predicated on these FA moves.
