Top 50 Washington Redskins Players of All Time

Born and raised just outside of Washington, D.C., I have been a huge Redskins fan my entire life. From winning the NFC East with RGIII in 2012 to watching us go 3-13 this season, I have been with the ‘Skins through thick and thin. Although the Redskins haven’t enjoyed much success in recent years, they are still a historic NFL franchise that has had many all-time great football players play for the team. In this article, I’m going to be ranking who I think are the best 50 players ever to don the burgundy and gold. I’m taking into account play on the field and how much of an impact each player had on the Redskins franchise. Without further ado, here is my list of the top 50 Redskins players of all time.

1. Sammy Baugh

sammy baugh 1 e1592066232731Sammy Baugh revolutionized the game of football. He was the 1st drop-back style quarterback in NFL history and paved the way for so many great quarterbacks after him. In 16 seasons with the Redskins, “Slingin’ Sammy” made six Pro Bowls, made 1st Team All-Pro four times, and won two NFL Championships. However, Baugh wasn’t just a quarterback. He also started at safety and punter for the Redskins and excelled in all of his positions. He is the only player in NFL history to lead the league in interceptions and passing yards during his career. Baugh was a member of the inaugural Pro Football Hall of Fame class in 1963 and in my eyes is the greatest Washington Redskin of all time.

2. Darrell Green

darrell green 1 e1592066544493The Redskins selected Darrell Green with the last pick in the 1st round in 1983 despite being a relatively unknown prospect out of Texas A&I (now known as Texas A&M Kingsville). The pick ended up being possibly the best draft pick the Redskins have ever made. Green would go on to play 20 seasons in the NFL, all of which were with the Redskins. He was considered by many to be the fastest man in the NFL during his career and even ran a 4.43 40-yard dash to celebrate his 50th birthday. Green made seven Pro Bowls in his career, made 1st Team All-Pro once, and was a two-time Super Bowl Champion. He was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008.

3. John Riggins

john riggins 1 e1592066320124“Riggo” may have been one of the most outlandish personalities in NFL history, but he was also one of the game’s best rushers. In his 14-year career, John Riggins used his size and power to run over his opponents. He was a bruising fullback who scored plenty of TDs throughout his career. His best season came in 1983 when he rushed for 1,347 yards and an absurd 24 rushing TDs. “The Diesel” ranks 7th all-time in rushing TDs with 104, was huge in the Redskins’ first Super Bowl win in 1982 and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1992.

5. Sean Taylor

sean taylor 1 e1592066508496Sean Taylor was one of the best up-and-coming talents the league had ever seen. The 6’2 safety out of Miami was an athletic freak, being able to cover the whole field and deliver some of the hardest hits in NFL history. In his four years with the Redskins, Taylor made two Pro Bowls and was considered one of the best safeties in the game. Unfortunately, Taylor was tragically killed in 2007 after trying to defend his Florida home from robbers. Although his career in the NFL was short-lived, Sean Taylor’s legacy lives on in the NFL, as many players wear Taylor’s #21 in his honor to this day.
