07:06 AM ET 01.02 | No matter how things play out with Big Blue, defensive coordinator Perry Fewell may have an alternative. According to a source, the Washington Redskins, who recently fired coach Mike Shanahan, have asked permission to interview Fewell, who has served as Giants defensive coordinator since 2010. Fewell joins a handful of candidates for the Redskins job, including Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell, Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, and Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. For Fewell, it would be his first chance at a head coaching job in a while. Several years ago, he was considered a hot coaching prospect, and he interviewed for four jobs in 2011. But he didn't get a look last offseason.
