WASHINGTON – The Washington Redskins announced on Friday the 10 contributors they have added to their list of the greatest all-time – a list that now includes former running back Clinton Portis and safety Sean Taylor and linebacker LaVar Arrington.
The Redskins announced their 70 greatest players and coaches in celebration of their 70th anniversary in 2002 and added an additional 10 this year, the 80th anniversary, in a campaign they titled “10 for 80.”
Joining Portis, who announced his retirement at Redskins Park on Thursday, and Taylor, who was killed in a botched robbery at his home in 2007, among the honorees are general manager Bobby Beathard, offensive line coach Joe Bugel, offensive tackles Terry Hermeling and Jon Jansen, receiver Roy Jefferson, safety Richie Petitbon and left tackle Chris Samuels.
Players and head coaches were available to be selected in the initial group, while the additional selections announced Friday allowed for the selection of assistant coaches.
