Nothing about Scot McCloughan’s departure from the Redskins has been typical: not his surprise absence from the NFL Scouting Combine, not the flimsy offered excuse, not the subsequent anonymously sourced media war over his status, not his abrupt departure from the team at the start of NFL free agency, not the manner in which the team anonymously went after him, not that he then sold his Redskins gear to raise money for charity, and not the fact that his first public comments about the organization after all that were overwhelmingly positive and upbeat.
The atypical progression continued late Tuesday night, when McCloughan’s wife, Jessica, and son Caden announced that the former Redskins GM had joined Twitter. This was no anodyne first night, either. Instead, the personnel man launched into a provocative Q&A with fans, in which he praised many of his former draft picks, lauded several of Washington’s offseason moves and didn’t rule out a return to D.C.
