There have been plenty of leaked reports and anonymous sources surrounding Robert Griffin III's career with the Redskins, but most of the time, the embattled QB has chosen to ignore the noise around him. On Monday, however, he took to Twitter to shoot down a controversial story that came from Bleacher Report.
Jason Cole, an NFL Insider for the site, said in a video that, "According to multiple sources within the Washington organization, there is a problem existing currently between Robert Griffin III and starting quarterback Kirk Cousins."
"Simply put, they don't talk," Cole continued. "They can't even be in the same room together at this point because of the tension that exists between the two sides."
Cole went on to explain that Griffin's behavior reflects his lack of leadership, and is just another example of the former Rookie of the Year not getting along with his Redskins teammates. He finished by saying that #10 is "isolating himself from the rest of the team."
According to Griffin, though, the report is not true. He sent out this tweet in response to Cole's claims:
When the hate don't work they start telling lies... I guess celebrating that your team won with your teammates is isolating yourself #HTTR

After the Burgundy and Gold's triumphant effort against the Rams on Sunday, there was nothing but good vibes in the D.C. area. Cole's report certainly had the potential to stir up some trouble, but Griffin's message makes it seem like the rumors that he and Cousins are having issues and he is separating himself from the rest of the locker room are false.
Without Griffin's immediate reaction, the story had the chance to significantly dampen all that has happened in the last 24 hours. Nevertheless, questions will still be asked, meaning all is normal inside the nation's capital.
