But Fisher also talked repeatedly about the bounty of players the Rams acquired as a result of the trade, saying the club was “able to shape our roster way beyond just the actual picks that we got from them.”
And to drive home that point, Fisher sent six of those players out for Sunday’s pre-game coin flip.
Fisher w/a little sense of humor. He sent Jenkins, Brockers, Stacy, Bailey, Robinson, Ogletree out for pregame coin toss at FedEx.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) December 7, 2014
What's the meaning of all that? All six were acquired as result of the RGIII trade.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) December 7, 2014
BTW, today's Rams coin toss captains were the six active roster players the team acquired using picks from the 2012 RG3 trade.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) December 7, 2014
The Redskins helpfully included footage of the coin flip on social media; you can see Alex Ogletree (52), Michael Brockers (90), Janoris Jenkins (21), Stedman Baily (12), Greg Robinson (79) and Zac Stacy (30) shaking hands with the Washington captains before the game.
The networks, of course, weren’t shy about discussing that trade, either.
