Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan mentioned that they’re currently in contract negotiations with ILB London Fletcher.
“All I can say is we want him and there are conversations ongoing,” Shanahan said
“We’re going to try very hard to get him back in the burgundy and gold,” added GM Bruce Allen. “And he has told us that he wants to come back. It’s just going to take maybe a little longer than we wanted to work it out.”
The Redskins have been adamant that Fletcher is one of their top priorities for the offseason. Fletcher has said that he would be willing to play elsewhere should a deal not be reached, but every indication suggests that he’ll be back in the “burgundy and gold” next season, as Allen put it.
