Gray off to Seattle; Redskins ponder replacement

Redskins secondary coach Jerry Gray is packing up his office at Redskins Park after accepting a job as defensive backs coach for the Seahawks, according to sources. Gray was offered the job last week, as first reported on NFL Network/NFL.com.

The Redskins are still filling out their staff. Bob Slowik, who previously worked for coach Mike Shanahan in Denver, likely will end up with a position coaching in the secondary with Washington. Slowik definitely will join the staff, but the exact position has been in some doubt as other positions are filled.

Jacob Burney, who was Shanahan’s defensive line coach in Denver, has interviewed for that position in Washington and is now considered the favorite by some in the organization (Tim Krumrie and Mike Waufle also have received consideration). Should Tom Cable be fired as the Raiders’ head coach, some league sources believe he could be a candidate for the Redskins’ offensive line position. Mike Solari, who had been the Seahawks’ offensive line coach until Alex Gibbs was recently hired, is another candidate.
