Rams send out RGIII trade haul for coin toss vs. Redskins
The St. Louis Rams' captains for Sunday's game vs. the Washington Redskins were six players they acquired with the draft picks obtained in the 2012 Robert Griffin III trade with the Redskins. The Rams won, 24-0.
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
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
Cornerback Janoris Jenkins, defensive tackle Michael Brockers, running back Zac Stacy, wide receiver Stedman Bailey, offensive tackle Greg Robinson and linebacker Alec Ogletree were all drafted by the Rams as a result of the Griffin trade in 2012. The Rams initially held the No. 2 pick in the draft, but traded the selection to the Redskins so that Washington could draft Griffin. In return, St. Louis received three first-round picks -- for 2012-14 -- and one 2012 second-round pick.
Jenkins and Brockers were both 2012 picks, while Stacy, Bailey and Ogletree were all 2013 picks and Robinson was a 2014 pick.
Griffin, who had been benched for the previous two games, entered the game with two minutes remaining after Colt McCoy exited with a neck strain. Griffin was sacked on his second play, but finished 3-of-4 for 33 yards. McCoy went 20-of-32 for for 199 yards and two interceptions before he left the game, and at one point, the FedEx Field crowd was chanting "RGIII" for Griffin.
