For 80 years the Washington Redskins have collected some of the greatest footballing talent from across the world to our Nation’s Capital—and Boston for a short period too of course.
Some players such as Hall of Famers Darrell Green and Sammy Baugh spent their entire careers in Burgundy and Gold while others split their days between several cities but never captivated a region quite like they did the DMV (cue Ken Houston and John Riggins.).
These men will live for eternity in Canton, symbolizing the greatness of the Washington Redskins.
While some still wait for their inductions (Joe Jacoby) others are just getting started—in the Hall of Very Good.

Sports Illustrated writer Don Banks recently made a stop at the Redskins’ OTA’s to get his first look at what the 2013 edition of the Burgundy and Gold might look like.
During his time at the Park, Banks conducted a one-on-one interview with Redskins quarterback Pat White and learned why things didn’t work out for White in Miami, his chances of cracking the roster in D.C., and what exactly he has needs to improve on to make the most of his second chance.

After being selected with the 173rd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, former FAU running back Alfred Morris packed all of his football gear and belongings into his ‘Bentley’ and headed north to our Nation’s Capital.
Morris had called Florida home dating back to his Pop Warner days, so moving away from the Sunshine State to the uncertainties (weather included) of a new area had No. 46 nervous yet ready to prove that he could call the Washington Redskins “home”.
With a record-breaking debut campaign in his back pocket, the running back gave an indication as to why he ran for 845 yards at FedExField last year—it’s all about the burgundy and gold.

Okay maybe two if you count the fact that they were captains on the NFC East champs.
No. 10 dazzled the nation behind a lethal concoction of speed, accuracy, and an infallible will to succeed. No. 59, however, displayed his typical blue-collar work ethic that has far succeeded his undrafted status.
Griffin III symbolizes the Burgundy and Gold’s offensive style while Fletcher does the same for the defense—in age that is.
