Would Art Briles be a good fit for the Redskins?

We have some sad news to pass along from Redskins Nation as longtime member of the team's marching band, Greg Rodgers of Upper Marlboro, Md., passed away on Monday due to a heart attack. 

Rodgers was traveling to work and suffered the heart attack at a gas station. He played in the band for 25 years.

Rodgers played the snare drum and was the leader of the band's percussionists. The Redskins Marching Band is the oldest in the National Football League, playing at games for more than 80 years. Rodgers, as all Redskins band members are, was a volunteer.

The Washington Post first reported his passing.
