On today’s episode of How Could The Redskins Get Any Worse? Jessica McCloughan — wife of general manager Scot McCloughan — was forced to apologize for a now-deleted tweet in which she claimed ESPN reporter Dianna Russini had been exchanging sexual favors for stories.

Over the weekend, Russini broke the story that incumbent quarterback Robert Griffin III thad been replaced by Kirk Cousins as the starter.

McCloughan issued the following apology to ESPN Wednesday:

I deeply apologize for the disparaging remarks about an ESPN reporter on my personal Twitter account. The comment was unfounded and inappropriate, and I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN. I regret that my actions have brought undeserved negative attention to the Redskins organization and its leadership. My comments in no way reflect the opinions or attitudes of the organization and I regret that my behavior has in any way negatively impacted the team and its loyal fan base.
