Redskins name Doug Williams personnel boss

With the start of mandatory minicamp, the Redskins named team icon Doug Williams as senior VP of personnel.

The Redskins are going with a team icon as their new Senior Vice President of Personnel. Former Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams will now be in charge of what players are on the roster.

Team President Bruce Allen says they were looking for the following traits, "You want someone who has unquestionable character, great leadership skills, a presence and a great teammate for everyone around him. And, that pointed to Doug."

As far as taking the position, Williams said, "This is like coming back home to me. I've been around the circuit, but there is nothing like coming back here to a place that gave you an opportunity to be on top of the stage in football. And, Washington did that for me. But not only when I came back, I found a great working group of guys."
