The Los Angeles Rams made a huge trade with the Tennessee Titans to land the number one overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft later this month. They will likely take a quarterback with the pick, but that didn’t stop the Washington Redskins from poking fun at the team.
Back before the 2012 NFL Draft, the Redskins traded six picks to the former St. Louis Rams for the second overall pick in the draft. This led to them drafting quarterback Robert Griffin III, which didn’t really work out well for the Redskins.
They know exactly what giving up a lot of draft picks does to their team and they decided to troll the Rams just minutes after their big trade.

Take this as you will, but you have to remember that the Rams were the ones to start this war. They trolled Washington in 2014 ahead of a match-up with the team in early December.
After Griffin had been replaced by 2012 third-round pick Kirk Cousins, the Rams sent all six of their players that they used the Redskins’ draft picks on out to the coin toss.
BTW, today's Rams coin toss captains were the six active roster players the team acquired using picks from the 2012 RG3 trade.

That is some top-level trolling for the Rams, but now it’s their turn to prove they didn’t just make a terrible move.
