New York Giants linebacker Keenan Robinson spent the first three years of his career with the Redskins after the team made him the 119th overall pick in the 2012 draft. Ahead of the rematch with his old team this week, the linebacker discussed some of the recent turmoil that has surrounded the Redskins following their 0-2 start.
Speaking with ESPN.com’s Jordan Raanan, Robinson is unsurprised by the reported grumbling that is going on in the locker room saying that it’s “the same old story”. From the story:
“When I was there, three out of four years, it was the same thing,” Robinson said. “Once they get down, they start pointing fingers. And that is true. That is what happens. And for the Redskins — I’ve only been on one team before I came here, and that was them — and all I saw was not the right way to handle it. I feel like they didn’t handle it the right way when I was there. They may be handling it different now. But when I was there, they started pointing fingers, people started talking. That’s how you get dissension in the locker room.”
Robinson went on to say that he likes the “atmosphere” more since going to the Giants. Robinson hasn’t started either game for the Giants this season, but has been playing as part of the team’s nickel package accumulating 8 total tackles (4 solo, 4 assists).
The Redskins travel to the Meadowlands to face the Giants this Sunday afternoon, with kick-off set for 1 p.m. ET from MetLife Stadium.
