We are bringing back the Redskins Best Ever Series. We have not done this for eight years. However, the dullness of the off-season is upon us and thus a perfect time to bring this series back. Essentially, we will go through each position and allow a Best Ever Series poll for a week for you to vote who the Best Redskins player of all time is at each position. With each successive poll, we will list in the next article the winner of the previous polls.
We start on the Defense. We start with the position of Safety.
