That sound you hear is not fans in the nation’s capital being excited over news on Thursday that Case Keenum and Colt McCoy will vie for the Redskins’ starting job next season.

Washington reportedly acquired Keenum from the Denver Broncos for an exchange of late-round picks in 2020.

Essentially, president Bruce Allen and the Redskins took the veteran journeyman off Denver’s hands for nothing.

This is going to set up one heck of a quarterback battle once the summer comes calling in D.C.

Reacting to news of the ho-hum trade, former Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III decided to shade his old franchise. It didn’t take too much reading between the lines to know where he was going here.

The No. 2 overall pick of Washington back in 2012, RGIII struggled through ups and downs for an organization that bumbled his tenure at nearly every turn. It resulted in an ugly divorce between the two sides following the 2015 campaign.

Griffin obviously isn’t over it.
