Hurney is reportedly meeting with Washington head coach Ron Rivera and other team officials Monday. Rivera and Hurney previously worked together with Carolina.
Washington didn't hire a general manager in 2020; Rivera led football operations while vice president of player personnel Kyle Smith oversaw the draft. The franchise planned to hire a GM this offseason to support Rivera, who should retain roster control.
Hurney had two stints as the Panthers' general manager, first filling the role from 2002-12 before returning in 2017. Carolina fired him in December as the team sank to its third consecutive losing season.
While the Panthers were looking for a more analytics-minded executive when they dismissed Hurney, Washington is rooted in more traditional scouting techniques under Rivera.
