Report: Cerrato resigns

Posted by Mike Florio on December 17, 2009 8:16 AM ET

Mike Holmgren's dalliance with the Browns might not be prompting the Seahawks to crap or get off the crapper.

But it's apparently forcing another team to move quickly.

ESPN 980 in Washington is reporting that Redskins executive V.P. of football operations Vinny Cerrato has resigned.

Adding credibility to the report is the fact that Redskins owner Daniel Snyder owns the station.

From MTH's other thread: (press release from the Redskins)


For Immediate Release

December 17, 2009


LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA – Vinny Cerrato today announced his resignation from the Washington Redskins. Cerrato has served as the club’s executive vice-president of football operations for the past two years, and previously served in five different roles, beginning in 1999.

In a statement, Cerrato said he has had numerous conversations with team owner Daniel Snyder over the last few weeks regarding the next steps for the club.

“We agreed that the franchise needs someone different in this position,” said Cerrato. “I’m thankful to Dan Snyder and other members of his ownership team for the opportunities I’ve been given over the years.”

“Of course, I am disappointed with this year’s results, but I strongly believe that with outstanding draft picks and encouraging performance by our younger players, we have laid a strong foundation for the franchise.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with some great coaches such as Joe Gibbs, Greg Blache and Sherman Lewis, great people on the Redskins staff, and, most especially, some of the best professional football players in the world. I wish them all the best,” Cerrato said. “I’ve also had the privilege of working for a franchise supported by the most loyal fans in the NFL.”

The team’s owner thanked Cerrato for the work he has accomplished.

“More importantly, he is my friend, and he has always been there for me and the Redskins,” Snyder said. “He’s the consummate optimist and has always made decisions based on what would be the best for the team.”
