The Washington Redskins are expected to meet with Richard Mann about joining Mike Shanahan’s coaching staff, likely as the wide receivers coach, a league source said.
Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers granted Mann permission to interview with an unknown organization before his contract expires next month. The source tells the National Football Post that Mann’s suitor is the Redskins where ex-Bucs general manager Bruce Allen is.
The Redskins need to get more production out of their wideouts. They drafted Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly in the second round in 2008 and have yet to get a return on their investments. Mann is credited with doing solid work with the Bucs for the last eight seasons.
