The Washington Redskins made a second round of layoffs Monday, dismissing six employees in the stadium ticket office and four seasonal employees.
The six laid off at the stadium worked in general admission
sales. The four seasonal employees worked at the Redskins Park
Earlier this month, the Redskins laid off more than 20 people,
mostly in the marketing, legal and technology departments. Director
of player development John Jefferson and salary cap analyst Jimmy
Halsell were also let go.
The Redskins are feeling the effects of the economic downturn
even though they are the second most valuable NFL franchise with an
estimated worth of $1.538 billion, according to Forbes' annual
rankings. They play in the NFL's largest stadium and have sold out
every home game since the 1960s.
