Jessica McCloughan, the wife of Washington Redskins' general manager Scot McCloughan, stepped forward to accept responsibility for two crude tweets aimed at a reporter.

"The comment was unfounded and inappropriate, and I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN," a statement posted by the Washington Post said. "I regret that my actions have brought undeserved negative attention to the Redskins organization and its leadership."

The tweets, which have been deleted, said ESPN reporter Dianna Russini used oral sex to get scoops on stories, Black Sports Online reported. A tweet also alleged an affair between Scot McCLoughan and Russini.

Washington Post opinion columnist Jerry Brewer said of the incident, "Maneuver past the ludicrous, preposterous and salacious details of the latest fiasco involving this zany local NFL team, and you encounter an issue that isn’t merely fodder for jokes and acerbic reaction to the franchise’s relentless buffoonery. The biggest problem, which few want to address in a thoughtful way, is that this new episode includes the primary thing that could derail an inspired rebuilding effort: Scot McCloughan’s personal life."

Brewer referred to Scot McCloughan's honesty in admitting to a drinking problem, and although he said he has been supportive of the general manager, the situation raises concerns.

NBC Sports said ESPN released a statement backing Russini in what the news organization called a "bizarre dustup."

"Dianna is an excellent reporter who should never have to be subjected to such vulgar comments. We are obviously extremely disappointed by today’s developments,” ESPN said.
