The Washington Post is set to release new report about unspecified issues within the Washington Redskins organization very soon. While it is anyone's guess as to the contents of the report will be, it has been hinted that it will be a "bombshell" and "sickening."

Earlier this week, the franchise fired two top employees in the scouting department, which sent up some red flags. On Wednesday, long time play-by-play announcer Larry Michael retired. He is also a senior vice president and the team's chief content officer.

This morning, Josina Anderson reported that lawyers are currently involved in the story. Now, we have some more information on that front, via ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. It certainly lends to the serious nature of the rumors.

Per Schefter, the team has hired prominent Washington lawyer Beth Wilkinson, who has been involved in high-profile legal situations, including the Brett Kavanaugh hearings in 2018. She will "review the organization's protocols," and "conduct a deep dive into the organization's past culture," according to the report. It certainly sounds like the team is bracing for something serious.

The news comes as the Washington Redskins are set to change the team's racist nickname. That high-profile change is set to come in time for the 2020 season. It has already been an eventful offseason for the franchise. Things could really explode if this Washington Post report is as troubling as many have hinted. We'll have more once some hard information drops. [

The Washington Post is preparing a story about its NFL team that is expected to highlight the culture that is existed. Within the past week, front office members Richard Mann III and Alex Santos, as well as radio play-by-play voice Larry Michael, all left the organization.
