Rams' Jeff Fisher Sends Players Traded for Robert Griffin III out for Coin Toss

St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher deserves an award for a clever stunt he pulled before Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins.

Back in March 2012, St. Louis traded the No. 2 overall pick in the draft to Washington in exchange for three first-round picks and a second-round pick. By the time all of the trades and picks were made, Washington drafted Robert Griffin III and the Rams got six players out of the deal. 

That trade was uniquely commemorated in Week 14. Washington hosted St. Louis on Sunday, so Fisher saw that as an opportunity to troll his opponent.

Check out whom Fisher sent out for the coin toss before the game:

Why are those players significant?

Well played, Fisher.

Here's video evidence: 

This was a genius move by Fisher. Griffin started the game on the bench, and this was a friendly reminder to the Redskins that they gave up quite a bit for the player they thought would be a franchise quarterback.

Griffin did see some action when the game got out of hand. He completed three of his four pass attempts for 33 yards.

St. Louis (6-7) cruised to a 24-0 victory to drop Washington to 3-10 on the season.
