Jay Gruden and Redskins making process for a deal

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden continues his interview tour on Thursday, but his next job may be in Washington.

Jay Gruden's tenure as the Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator may be coming to an end.

According to Mark Maske with the Washington Post, the Washington Redskins and Gruden are making progress towards a deal that would make Gruden their next head coach.

The deliberations were at a sensitive stage and it was possible the deal still could unravel, according to one of those people, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic. That person called it "possible [but] not definite" that Gruden would be hired by the Redskins. The other person said an agreement was within reach but not fully completed.

Gruden arrived in Washington Tuesday night and had dinner with general manager Bruce Allen, a normal tactic for teams interviewing potential head coaching candidates. However, due to the Gruden's relationship with Allen (both worked at Tampa bay) and an agent creating demand for his client, Gruden is a heavy favorite for the job.

Gruden will head to Minnesota on Thursday to interview with the Vikings.
