The Washington Redskins lost out on their top choice for a defensive coordinator when Gus Bradley agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Chargers on Friday night. Bradley, fired as the coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars late in the 2016 regular season, interviewed with Washington on Jan. 11. He was regarded both by the Redskins and others around the league as the top defensive coordinator candidate available. Bradley had strong ties to members of the Redskins' organization, having coached the Seattle defense while Scot McCloughan worked in the Seahawks front office. Before that, Bradley coached with current Washington caoch Jay Gruden as an assistant in Tampa Bay; Redskins team president Bruce Allen was the Buccaneers' general manager at the time.

National Women's Soccer League: The Washington Spirit are on the verge of trading Canadian national team midfielder Diana Matheson. Specifics were still evolving Saturday, but Washington was looking to acquire a young player, draft pick and perhaps other considerations. Matheson, 32, has made 63 appearances and 56 starts in becoming the Spirit's career scoring leader with 23 goals despite missing almost all of the 2015 season recovering from a knee injury.
