WASHINGTON REDSKINS AND SCHAFFER MUTUALLY PART WAYS

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have mutually parted ways with Eric Schaffer.

“I want to thank Eric Schaffer for his work and contributions over the past 17 years. He was dedicated to the team and the organization and we wish him all the best,” said Washington Redskins Owner Dan Snyder.

“I want to express my sincere gratitude to Dan Snyder for bringing me into the NFL and allowing me to be a Washington Redskin for the past 17 seasons. It was a privilege serving this historic franchise as both Senior Vice President of Football Operations and General Counsel and a blessing to have worked with so many incredible people,” said Schaffer. “While I will miss the players, my friends, colleagues, and the tremendous Washington Redskins' fans, my family and I are excited for our next chapter.”

Rogers new title points up Rivera's separation of the administrative and football operations.

Long overdue IMO.

Seems like Eric did a good job while here, but I think a contract/cap specialist is probably pretty easy to replace, not worried about him leaving.

Part of the issue IMO was that Schaffer didn't want to remain 'just a cap guy' and general counsel. He wanted to be an active member of the football operations front office - and with no practical experience in that role.
