Former San Diego Chargers general manager A.J. Smith appears set to join the Washington Redskins as a front office adviser and consultant.
Smith, 63, recently spent time at the NFL Scouting Combine visiting with teams about potential job opportunities. After making the rounds, he is choosing to work for the Redskins according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Smith’s son Kyle currently works as a scout for the team. He is also said to have ties to current general manager Bruce Allen and owner Daniel Snyder.
The Redskins were one of three teams Smith is said to have spoken with in Indianapolis. He also spoke with the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots where he has relationships with Andy Reid and Bill Belichick.
Smith, along with former Redskins head coach Norv Turner, was fired by the Chargers at the end of last season.
