We're taking a look at the best four players to have ever played for each of the 32 NFL franchises. Let's reveal the four greatest Commanders according to our Bookies.com algorithm...

The Washington Commanders, after being the “Washington Football Team” for the past two years, are entering their first year with their new name. Head coach Ron Rivera, in his first year with Washington in 2020, earned a playoff berth and looks to achieve that again in 2022. 

Washington has a very young and talented defensive line that is going to continue to cause problems for offenses. Their change in quarterback, bringing in Carson Wentz, is going to be a fun storyline to watch this season.

No. 1 - Charley Taylor

Charley Taylor is one of the more dynamic offensive weapons the NFL has ever seen. Starting his career at running back before making the change to wide receiver, he provided a lot of different looks for the Washington offense. 

Taylor scored a total of 90 touchdowns, to go along with 10,598 scrimmage yards. After being voted the Rookie of the Year in 1964, he was invited to eight Pro Bowls and made one All-Pro first team. 

No. 2 - Ken Houston

After starting his career with the Houston Oilers, Ken Houston made himself a household name as a safety for Washington. The 12-time Pro Bowler was also selected to the All-Pro first team twice during his tenure with Washington.

In his 14-year career, Houston turned the ball over 70 times, while returning ten for TDs. Throughout his career, he had four seasons with five or more interceptions. He also had one punt returned for a touchdown for Washington in 1974.

No. 3 - Sonny Jurgensen

Sonny Jurgensen, our lone quarterback on this list, spent 11 of his 18 years in the NFL with Washington. Jurgensen, after winning an NFL Championship with the Eagles, came over to Washington and shined at QB. 

He led the league in passing five times, earning him five Pro Bowl honors as well. A singular All-Pro first team selection early in his career ignited a very impressive tenure for the Duke Football prospect. He led 18 comebacks, as well as 14 game-winning drives.

No. 4 - Darrell Green

The only player on this list to play 20 seasons in the NFL, Darrell Green made an incredible impact in the Washington secondary. Green intercepted the ball 54 times, while returning six of them for touchdowns. 

Green was a part of two Super Bowl-winning teams for Washington, and he earned seven Pro Bowl appearances and one All-Pro first team selection. Green had one of the longest careers for a cornerback.


Methodology

To determine the Ring of Honor for the Washington Commanders, Bookies.com utilized the website, ProFootballReference.com to gather for each player: 

  1. Career Weighted Approximate Value (Career AV)
  2. Hall of Fame Monitor score

After those findings, we averaged the two data sets to develop our rankings for the players to determine the top four players included in the Ring of Honor.
