PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan)- RADIO.COM Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora played a major part in the stir up that broke out shortly after Jay Gruden got fired in Washington as the Redskins head coach.

Listen to your team news NOW.

La Canfora tweeted this out, mentioning Dan Snyder's great interest in Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. 

Tomlin was asked about his rumored candidacy on Tuesday during his weekly press conference and quickly dismissed the notion, saying in short that he was a 1-4 football team to worry about right now.  

La Canfora joined The Fan Morning Show on Wednesday to follow up on his tweet and the Tomlin to Washington possibilities.

"I think at the end of the day, it will be up to him (Tomlin) and the Rooneys'. He's going to have that opportunity. It's going to be known to them that that's available. I don't think money would be an object and I don't think power or control would be an object. I think Mike Tomlin would be able to build that franchise in his image and likeness with whomever he wants at whatever price he wants." 

"Is that going to be where he wants to go? I don't know. I don't even know if he could answer that question, he certainly didn't really seem to answer it yesterday. If anything, I felt like that door was left ajar. Come January, if there's a package put in front of him and in front of them (the Rooneys') that's worth considering, I'd have to think they would consider it." 

Some what kind of "package" are we talking about here? 

"I think there'd be a considerable draft pick. I don't know it would be this year's first round pick because that might be the first overall pick. But a future #1? I don't think that would be out of the question. At all, to be honest with you." 

"That's a desperate, broken franchise and an owner whose convenant with his fans has been shattered. He can't get them to buy a beer or t-shirt much less a ticket. It's over right now. He needs to do something big and bold."
