Honors

Prior to the 2014 season, three Redskins were voted onto the NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2014. Pierre Garçon was voted by his peers as the 80th best player overall in the league while DeSean Jackson and Trent Williams landed at spots 63 and 60, respectively. While Williams improved in rank from #99 in 2013, teammates Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris, who were voted 15th and 64th the previous season, did not make the 2014 list.[4]
