Redskins’ Tweet Suggests Team Had Eyes On Rams-Titans Blockbuster Trade

OK, Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans. We see you.

Or better yet, the Washington Redskins see you, judging by a certain tweet Thursday from the team’s official Twitter account shortly after the Rams landed the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft in a blockbuster trade with the Titans.

The solo emoji technique is subtle, yet it’s perfect. The Redskins, of course, surrendered a king’s ransom to the Rams before the 2012 NFL Draft in order to land the No. 2 overall pick and the opportunity to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. (Andrew Luck went No. 1 to the Indianapolis Colts.)

Washington surely regrets that decision, as RG3 now is with the Cleveland Browns after being released by the Redskins last month. And interestingly enough, the Browns hold the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft, with many wondering whether both Cleveland and Los Angeles will select quarterbacks with the top two selections.
