Washington Redskins president Bruce Allen is the “least trusted” executive in the NFL, according to a USA Today poll.

The poll asked 25 agents to rank teams preparation during negotiations and executives trustworthiness.

Along with Allen, the agents voted the Redskins the third worst prepared franchise in the league.

Allen has been with the Redskins since 2009, serving as the teams general manager before being named president in 2014. He is in charge of all personnel-related moves, and tends to miss rather than hit.

A few of his moves include trading a second-round pick for then 36-year-old quarterback Donovan McNabb. McNabb signed a five-year $78 million deal, and was later traded after one season for a sixth-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings.

McNabb went 5-8 as a starter in Washington.

In 2011, Allen signed safety O.J. Atogwe to a five-year, $26 million contract. Atogwe was released after one year.

Allens most famous move came in 2012, trading three first-round picks and a second rounder in order to move up for quarterback Robert Griffin III. Griffin signed a $21 million deal over four years, but was later released in 2016 after injury-plagued seasons.

Ironically, defending his swap of Kirk Cousins for Alex Smith, Allen told the Washington Post, “Wins and losses is the most important statistic when it comes to an equipment manager, a team president, a quarterback, a running back, a guard or a coach.”

As president, Allen is 52-75-1 with the Redskins.
