Washington Football

With Monday's news that Washington's football team will retire the Redskins name and logo, the franchise's history will now be split into two eras.

Before that next era begins, though, it's time to close the record books on the previous one.

Who was the last player to score a touchdown under the Burgundy and Gold's old name? How about the last guy to notch a sack?

Below, you'll find those answers and many, many more. File these away as useful (or, as others may call them, useless) trivia tidbits. Also, be sure to appreciate some of the random people who now permanently hold certain parts of Washington football history (as long as, you know, there's truly a new name by Week 1).
