Regular visitors of Notinhalloffame.com know that we are slowly working on the top 50 of every major team in the NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB. Once that is done, we intend to look at how each team honor their past players and executive. As such it is news to us that the Washington Redskins have announced that they will be honoring Chris Samuels and London Fletcher to their Ring of Honor.
Chris Samuels played all ten of his seasons in Washington where he would start all 141 of his Games at Left Tackle. Drafted 3rdoverall in 2000, Samuels would be named to the Pro Bowl six times.
London Fletcher played the last seven of his sixteen seasons in the NFL with the Redskins and it was the most successful tenure of the Linebacker’s career. Fletcher was chosen for four straight Pro Bowls (2009-12) and never had a season where he finished with less than 111 Combined Tackles. He would lead the NFL in that statistic in 2011 and he would also contribute with 12 Interceptions and 11.5 Sacks.
