Redskins are "prepared to meet" with defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer this weekend

You can't argue that the biggest reason Cincinnati's defense has become a well respected defense in this league is the team's defensive coordinator, Mike Zimmer. Rumor recently surfaced that the Washington Redskins are interested in Zimmer and have targeted him for a lateral move. Speaking on history of both franchises, an offer from the Redskins would undoubtedly crush whatever offer the Bengals would make.

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora writes that if the Bengals lose to the Jets this weekend, the Washington Redskins are "prepared to meet with Zimmer this weekend." However, Zimmer isn't the only candidate. La Canfora also writes that that the Redskins "plan to meet with Jim Haslett, a former NFL head coach, according to a league source."

The one interesting point La Canfora makes is:

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has been continually intrigued by the prospects of going to a 3-4 scheme, which is part of the reason why Haslett is so attractive.
