La Canfora heading to NFL Network

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, Redskins beat writer Jason La Canfora is leaving The Washington Post to join the NFL Network. Florio adds:

La Canfora will join a stable of NFL reporters that has been filling the shoes previously occupied by Adam Schefter.

Schefter, though still technically employed by NFLN, will be moving to ESPN after his contract expires in August.

Because the network is owned by the league, it’s essentially owned in equally-sized 1/32nd chunks by the teams. And so, in a roundabout way, La Canfora will be working for the franchise whose Executive V.P. of Football Operations he accused of slander last year.

Florio is, of course, talking about Vinny Cerrato, but that's another point entirely. La Canfora did a great job covering the Redskins, though he was often quick to criticize the team and front office, sometimes for no apparent reason.

Still, the Post's Redskins coverage will certainly be different without him, which is both a good and bad thing. Good luck, Jason.
