Redskins’ Gruden unconcerned about job security amid losing streak


Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden doesn't know what his future holds with the organization. He does know he's in a precarious situation, five years into his contract. But, he said, it hasn't added any sort of burden with three games remaining in the season.

"It doesn't weigh on me at all," Gruden told ESPN on Friday. "My key works; I come in and work. … I understand it. You're fine, you're fine, you're fine and then you're not fine. I'll wait to get final word when the season is over."

That's when Gruden will sit down with owner Dan Snyder, as the two always do once the season ends. Last season, word leaked before the finale that Gruden's job was safe.

"It's not my job to judge [my performance]," Gruden said. "It's my job to coach the guys I've got. There's only one judge and he's the one that has all the money. He's the one that writes the checks. It's up to him."

The Redskins remain alive in the playoff race at 6-7, but they've lost four consecutive games and five of their past six heading into Sunday's game at Jacksonville. Washington has 17 players on injured reserve, including five starters on offense. The Redskins will be starting their fourth quarterback of the season Sunday.
