Redskins great Joe Theismann officially gave Dwayne Haskins his blessing to wear No. 7, sharing the news with 106.7 The Fan moments later.

The whole situation doesn't sit right with Tony on Long Island, who called up Grant & Danny moments after to scream about it.

"This is why the Redskins are the Redskins," this glorious rant begins. "The numbers should be retired, and it's really not that complicated. You put Joe Theismann, who was a Super Bowl MVP, and the first quarterback to win a Super Bowl for this franchise, where he's got to take a call from a mid-first-round pick asking for his number! That is buffoonery!

"Nobody can call up the New York Yankees and ask them for Mickey Mantle's phone number, or Mickey Mantle's number, because he's Mickey Mantle!"
