Top 10 Washington Football Team Players

The Top Ten
1 Sammy Baugh
2 Darrell Green

He may be small, but he was fast and good. Intercepting 54 passes, and played in 295 games through 3 decades, and can run down Tony Dorsett and Eric Dickerson for a tackle. The 1987 postseason saw him score a TD in the Divisioal Playoffs and in the Championship Game, knocked down a potential game-tying Touchdown pass. Darrell a true NFL Legend.

3 Sean Taylor
4 Clinton Portis

For 7 season, Portis brought joy to a team that at times can be good or bad, but not Portis. In 2004, he rushed for 1,315 yards, the first of 4 seasons in which he rushed for more than 1,000 yards. It took him a while to adjust his running style because his coach Joe Gibbs wanted him to be a Power Runner instead of his blazing speed that he was known as a member of the Broncos. In 2008, in one 5-game stretch he rushed for 700 yards or more, only O.J. Simpson did that many. Portis, one of the 80 Greatest Redskins ever.

5 Russ Grimm
6 Sonny Jurgensen

The truth is Sonny had two great careers. The first was as a player and man he can fire bullets to his men, great enough to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Sonny once said "All I ask of my blockers is four seconds." Well despite being a free spirited man, was a well built quarterback. Now the second came as a broadcaster, he first worked at CBS, where his knowledge of the game and some updates on other games in progress was good enough for the Redskins to hire him as a color commentator and blossomed, it wasn't until 2019 after 45 years as a commentator he finally retired, but what a career.

7 Art Monk
8 Ken Houston
9 Bobby Mitchell

When he arrived in 1962, the Redskins didn't treat he well because of the color of the skin, but owner George Preston Marshall saw something in Mitchell, so he put him as a halfback. Mitchell showed his former team the Cleveland Browns that Mitchell still had the total package as he made 3 straight trips to the Pro Bowl and leading the NFL in receptions in 1962 and leading the NFL in touchdown receptions in 1964. In 2020 after all this team his number 49 jersey was retired by the Washington Football Club.

10 Charles Mann
The Contenders
11 Ricky Sanders

This man has great ability to run and speed, and though he's one of 70 Greatest Redskins and caught 80 passes in 1989, and had a combined 2,284 receiving yards (1988 and 1989) and 2 Super Bowl rings, he is forever remebered by having Ronald Reagan said Where's Ricky Sanders?

17 London Fletcher

19 Gerald McCoy Gerald Keith McCoy Jr. is an American football defensive tackle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League.
20 DeAngelo Hall
21 Laron Landry

He was the 6th pick of the 2007 NFL Draft, and didn't disappoint the Redskins faithful. He had a great start to his career. He teamed with Sean Taylor to formed Area 51, a name taken by the fact that Landry wore number 21 and Taylor wore number 30. Sadly this duo would end way too soon with the shocking death of Taylor, but Landry played on, and for 4 seasons he was one of the best players on the Redskins team. In his rookie season, he was on the P F W A All-rookie team. He recorded 95 tackles in his great rookie year.
