It was a season of change in Washington.

The Washington Redskins have made a few major changes this season: After an 0-5 start, head coach Jay Gruden was fired after five years at the helm. And after a 3-13 finish, team president Bruce Allen was fired by owner Daniel Snyder after 10 years with the organization.

With the season over the players were left to clean out their lockers and adjust to the new reality. Here is how they reacted to the news of Allen's firing and the possible hiring of Ron Rivera as the next head coach.

Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins had a few things to say:

And he had some advice on what the Redskins should do with the No. 2 overall pick:

Quarterback Alex Smith, who the Redskins added via a trade before the 2018 season, said seeing people lose their job is hard.

Veteran quarterback Case Keenum's reaction: Culture.

Defensive end Ryan Kerrigan felt bad for Allen.

And reflected on the possible hiring of Rivera and his own future.

Running back Adrian Peterson said he liked the locker room culture in his second season with the team.

Brandon Scherff, who will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, gave an injury update.

And veteran defensive back Josh Norman let music do the talking:

Running back Derrius Guice provided an injury update.

Pro Bowl punter Tress Way remembered Allen as the person who gave him a shot.

Tight end Jordan Reed, who missed the 2019 season due to a concussion, was in the building, but unavliable to speak.

Quarterback Colt McCoy was not in Ashburn on Monday as he left for the offseason after the game in Dallas.
