Skins' Gray hasn't joined Seahawks yet
By Dan Graziano
Redskins secondary coach Jerry Gray is telling the Washington Post that he's still pondering an offer from the Seattle Seahawks. Gray interviewed to become the Redskins' head coach before Jim Zorn was fired and then he talked to Mike Shanahan about staying on as the defensive coordinator.
"I do have an offer from Seattle to be their secondary coach, and it's a one-of-a-kind offer, but I have not signed yet," Gray told the Post on Monday. "I'm not waiting for any particular reason, but with the holiday it hasn't happened yet. I'm not saying it won't happen. We'll see what happens [Tuesday]."
Gray also told the Post that he's not waiting around to hear from the Skins. And I think that's a good idea. Shanahan quickly hired Jim Haslett to be his defensive coordinator and there's not really a spot for Gray with the Redskins. Owner Dan Snyder was a huge fan of Gray's, but he's taking a hands-off approach with Shanahan and general manager Bruce Allen. We'll have more on the Redskins situation throughout the week.
