Former Redskins GM Scot McCloughan Auctions Items to Help Redskins Charity

Despite being fired by the Redskins recently, that’s not stopping former Redskins GM Scot McCloughan from giving back to the team that gave him a job.

The former GM is putting items he owed while a member of the Redskins front office up for auction, giving the proceeds of what he sells to the Redskins Charitable Foundation.

ESPN has the story.

Scot McCloughan has turned his popularity into a vehicle to help a foundation run by the team that fired him.

The former Washington Redskins general manager, at the suggestion of his wife, is auctioning off items on eBay that he wore during his two years with the team, including an autographed camo hat. He was photographed in that hat on several occasions, often during training camp.

The bidding on McCloughan’s auctioned items reflects his popularity. The latest bid Monday morning for the camo hat was $410. A second autographed hat that he had worn twice, according to a description of the item, had received a bid of $175.51. Radio station 106.7 The Fan first mentioned on its website that McCloughan’s items were up for auction, citing a tweet by his wife Friday.

The McCloughans will donate the money to the Redskins Charitable Foundation. Jessica McCloughan told The Washington Post that: “When it’s all said and done, Scot and I are still grateful that we were able to come here, so why not give back to the people that brought us here.”

Jessica McCloughan told ESPN it wasn’t a hard choice to support the Redskins’ charitable foundation.

“I had first hand experience with the foundation while I was here so I know how much they help people and kids specifically,” McCloughan said in a direct message.

  1. Scot McCLOUGHAN fan says:

    Are we seeing the last of NILES PAUL, or will DEREK CARRIER get the axe?

    Would love to see ARIE KOUANDJIO take the LG slot from injury-prone SHAWN LAUVAO.

    It’s now or never for both CARRIER and KOUANDJIO I think.

    Would anyone be surprised to see another top round RB AND WR next year?

    KELLEY has a lot to prove this season. PRYOR and QUICK are on make-good one-year deals.

    Or a top FA NT? ILB, OLB and DE are looking phat at the moment.

    We should begin thinking of improving O-line back-ups in the 2018 draft with a day two pick.

    And will the S position fall flat on it’s face once again?

    Is a round #1 FS in the offing in 2018?

    2017’s season will tell.

    2018 was my timeline for the REDSKINS to finally overcome the disaster of RGIII, and the “un-capped” year that wasn’t.
