The Washington Redskins have hired one of their former quarterbacks to help decide roster moves.

58-year-old Doug Williams was hired Monday to become a personnel executive to work with general manager Bruce Allen on making roster decisions.

Williams, who last season was the head football coach at Grambling University, played with Tampa Bay and Washington in the NFL and also in the United States Football League (USFL).

From 1986-89, he was the Redskins signal-caller. Williams retired with a 5-9 record as Redskins starter (8-9, counting playoffs) and a 38-42-1 record as a regular season starter (42-45-1, including 7 playoff starts). He had 100 passing touchdowns, and 15 rushing touchdowns, in 88 NFL games.

He is considered to be one of the 80 Greatest Redskins of all-time.
