Marty Hurney is NOT the new Washington GM

Gotcha. Like I said that seems kinda backwards to me but hey...

Still find it pretty ironic that Mayhew ended up with the job Marty wanted. There's a certain level of poetic justice there.

I agree. I think an incentive for the hiring team would be more helpful than the current structure, but I guess they might be trying to overcome any systemic issues that suppress minority hiring at the lower levels.

What value does Hurney bring?

I'm serious - I've never been able to work out his skill set. It's not cap management, contract negotiations or talent evaluation. 

He was money on first rounders over the years... Maybe just to make the calls on first round picks?

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports ex-Panthers GM Marty Hurney is joining the Washington Football Team's front office, but not as general manager. 

Per Rapoport, Hurney will "have a high-ranking role in the front office." The top role is going to ex-Lions GM Martin Mayhew. That's a lot of experience and brainpower in a front office that has been desperately low on both of late, though it could make for a confused command structure, something that has been staple under owner Daniel Snyder. Hurney and coach Ron Rivera's long history together could create a temptation to work independently of Mayhew. Rivera has seemed to know what he's doing as he's seized the reins in Washington, but every best-laid plan under Snyder has eventually come to ruin. 

I think I might want Hurney over any Lion's GM.

Here's some irony for ya...

Martin Mayhew was one of the three sham Rooney Rule interviews that  Jerry Richardson used to "comply" with the rule before hiring Marty.

Now, per LaCanfora, one of the reasons listed for giving Mayhew the GM position instead of Marty is that the new rules give the Redskins a 3rd round pick for making him the GM rather than Marty.

Not a bad PR plan when a sizable portion of the country consider your franchise so racist that they take away your name.

He absolutely needs to do a Master Class on YouTube focused on either blackmail or kissing ass....not sure which he was really good at, but it was one of the two.
