Redskins coach Jay Gruden reads his players' tweets in meetings

Monday December 8th, 2014

The Washington Redskins are a complete disaster. They have the second-worst record in the NFL, can't decide which quarterback they want to start, and are being openly mocked by opponents for their poor personnel decisions. 

So what do they discuss in team meetings? How to avoid a second-straight three-win season? No, head coach Jay Gruden is reading players' tweets. 

Sadly, this might actually matter in Washington. If there is a franchise unstable enough to be disrupted in fewer than 140 characters, it's this one. 

So what kind of controversial things are Washington players tweeting?

Wow. Shocking stuff. 

The Redskins' PR team spun it a different way, pointing to a passage in the team yearbook about how Gruden shows tweets as a way of "poking a little fun" at players. Gruden's tone sure sounded different Friday, though.
