Report: Shanahan summons agent to D.C.

The Shanahan Watch continues, but maybe not for much longer.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting now that the two sides have begun to discuss contract details. Schefter has as close a relationship with Mike Shanahan as anyone in the media, dating back to Schefter's time covering Shanahan's teams in Denver. Schefter, in fact, wrote Shanahan's 2000 book, "Think Like A Champion."
Schefter tweeted this afternoon: "Talks went well enough last night that Mike Shanahan summoned his agent, Sandy Montag, to Washington to negotiate his contract."

Montag is a long-time executive at IMG who has represented John Madden for years. He teamed up with former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer to form the New York-based firm Ari Fleischer Communications.

Newsday's Bob Glauber tweeted that Montag was in Snyder's box for last month's Giants-Redskins game at FedEx Field.

In Ashburn, there has been no word about any press conferences - not for Joe Bugel, not for Shanahan - so far today.
