Redskins Meet with Bradley
Wednesday, Jan. 11
Garafolo initially reported on Jan. 6 that Washington has interest in pursuing Bradley for the position:

Early buzz: Gus Bradley is atop Redskins' list of defensive coordinator candidates. GM Scot McCloughan knows him well from their time in SEA2017-1-6 14:43:44
Although Bradley flamed out as a head coach, going just 14-48 in parts of four seasons with the Jags, Jacksonville did boast the NFL's No. 6 defense in terms of yardage allowed this season.
Bradley served as the Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator from 2009 through 2012 and was key in their development into an elite defensive unit.
One potential stumbling block in the Redskins landing Bradley is a recent report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that Bradley intends to follow Buffalo Bills interim head coach Anthony Lynn should he land a permanent head coaching position.
Defense has been Washington's Achilles' heel over the past couple of seasons, as the offense led by quarterback Kirk Cousins has largely been tasked with carrying the team.
The Redskins have some big-time talent on that side of the ball in the form of cornerback Josh Norman and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, and a defensive mind like Bradley may be precisely what they need in order to take the defense to the next level.
