[With 14 days until the start of training camp, we take a look back at the career of quarterback Eddie LeBaron. LeBaron spent seven seasons with the Washington Redskins.]

Last season, quarterback Robert Griffin III set an NFL record for the most rushing yards by a rookie quarterback.

For now, it appears that his 815 rushing yards and 3,200 passing yards will be the foundation of what will be a career filled with jaw-dropping moments through the air and battles on the ground for that much needed extra yard.

Football “purists” don’t necessarily agree with what they might call an unorthodox playing style behind center. They need look no further than 80 Greatest Redskin Eddie LeBaron, though, as proof that you don’t have to come from a “traditional” mold to have a fruitful career in the NFL.

For those of you who grew up during the Redskins’ decade of dominance, you most assuredly remember the days of Art Monk, Joe Theismann, John Riggins, Darrell Green and countless others  leading the franchise to the summit of the National Football League.

Speaking of Monk, you may also recall his long overdue enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Monk finished his illustrious 14-year career with over 12,000 yards and 65 touchdowns—numbers that put him in the upper echelon of receivers to play the game.

Well just five years after his nearly decade long wait into Canton, Monk along with Gary Clark find themselves snubbed of recognition once again as they aren’t on NFL.com’s best receiving tandems of all-time list.

These raw numbers should have them reconsidering their list.

How about this for a seismic turnaround—not only do the Washington Redskins have one of the brightest young quarterbacks in Robert Griffin III, they have the best backup quarterback in the NFL in former Michigan State star Kirk Cousins.

Not that long ago the quarterback position was considered, by some, to be an area of interest in terms of performance; the reasoning behind head coach Mike Shanahan and Co. picking two highly talented quarterbacks in the first four rounds of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Despite the fact that Cousins has appeared in (only) three games with one start, he tops the list. Impressive to say the least, but not a surprise to Redskins Nation.
