As if the Washington Commanders needed to make more headlines this year, another major misstep from the franchise occurred on Wednesday involving running back Brian Robinson.

The District of Columbia attorney general was set to make an announcement regarding the team when a Commanders spoke person sent a preemptive response invoking Robinson’s shooting from earlier this year.

It was later announced by Attorney General Karl A. Racine that his office is suing Commanders owner Dan Snyder, the Commanders, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and the NFL for colluding to deceive District residents about an investigation into toxic workplace culture.

“Less than three months ago, a 23-year-old player on our team was shot multiple times, in broad daylight,” read the statement from the team. “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.”

Once the Commanders’ statement was posted online, the team was immediately bashed for bringing up Robinson’s shooting which included several major members of the media as well as Robinson’s own agent.
