The Washington Commanders are nothing if not creative. After all, how many other NFL teams would react to news of an upcoming Washington D.C. attorney general announcement by using their rookie's shooting as a shield?
That was the first step a team spokesperson took in responding to Attorney General Karl Racine scheduling a news conference for Thursday to make a major announcement about the team, following an investigation into the franchise's alleged workplace misconduct and potentially more. In a statement released to Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post, the Commanders decided to bring up the shooting of running back Brian Robinson Jr.:
"Less than three months ago, a 23-year-old player on our team was shot multiple times, in broad daylight. Despite the out -of-control violent crime in DC, today the Washington Commanders learned for the first time on Twitter that the D.C. Attorney General will be holding a press conference to "make a major announcement" related to the organization tomorrow.
