Washington had hired general manager Scot McCloughan, known as a personnel-gathering savant who grappled with personal challenges. The team drafted an offensive lineman with its first pick. It was a head-turning, agreeable decision for an organization often more attracted to shine than concrete. In this photo taken Sept. 13, 2015, Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan walks on the field before an NFL football game against the Miami Dolphins, in Landover, Md. After seeing their team unravel following a disputed penalty call in a 28-point loss this season, a couple of veterans on the Redskins, safety Dashon Goldson and nose tackle Terrance Pot Roast Knighton thought a players-only meeting would be a good idea.
