The story has been been floating around local social media since Sunday. The Washington NFL franchise has a culture problem despite what former Team President Bruce Allen says. It has been a problem since Dan Snyder bought the team in 1999, and if the teases are true, that culture will be put under the national spotlight again.

The Washington Post will reportedly release a story on Washington's culture problem very soon. The organization likely knows what is coming at them in this article, and they have retained high-profile trial attorney Beth Wilkinson to review their protocols.

They have already reportedly fired Director of Pro Personnel Alex Santos and Assistant Director of Pro Personnel Richard Mann II. Chief Content Officer/Senior VP/”Voice of the Redskins” Larry Michael suddenly announced his retirement yesterday after 16+ years with the organization. All three men have been linked to the scandalous story. Now Washington goes into damage control mode.

Statement from Wilkinson's firm:

“We can confirm that our firm was retained by the team to do an independent review of the team’s culture, policies and allegations of workplace misconduct.”
