Wife of Washington GM Scot McCloughan Apologizes for Tweeting ESPN Reporter Traded "BJ" for Scoop

The fervent truth-tellers in the Washington organization denied the claim. Case closed? Not so fast.

“I deeply apologize for the disparaging remarks about an ESPN reporter on my personal Twitter account,” Jessica McCloughan said in a statement to PFT, which was issued by the franchise. “The comment was unfounded and inappropriate, and I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN. I regret that my actions have brought undeserved negative attention to the Redskins organization and its leadership. My comments in no way reflect the opinions or attitudes of the organization and I regret that my behavior has in any way negatively impacted the team and its loyal fan base.”

The bright side of this whole ordeal is that there is little anyone could do at this point to cause fans to think any less of the Washington football franchise.
