The Buccaneers and Redskins are considering Keenan McCardell for their receiver coaching vacancies, according to league sources.
McCardell, a longtime stalwart receiver, has had contact with both teams and likely will meet with them more during the Senior Bowl this week in Mobile, Ala.
McCardell, who spent time assisting the Giants during the 2009 preseason, has a strong reputation within the league, and his technique and preparation defined his 16-year NFL career. He originally was a 12th-round draft pick by the Redskins in 1991, but he became a star with the Jaguars (1996-2001) and later ended his career in Washington in 2007. He also played two seasons (2002-03) with the Bucs and spent time with the Browns (1992-95) and Chargers (2004-06).
The Redskins interviewed former Bucs receivers coach Richard Mann several weeks ago, but the job has remained vacant on new coach Mike Shanahan‘s staff.
