Unofficial retired numbers

The Redskins’ policy since Baugh’s retirement has been to not retire numbers.  However, some numbers are unofficially retired and are usually withheld from being assigned to new players.  The following numbers of past Redskin greats fall into that category.

The use of unofficial retired numbers drew controversy during Steve Spurrier‘s first year as head coach.  Quarterbacks Danny Wuerffeland Shane Matthews first wore 7 and 9 respectively during training camp.  The resulting sports talk furor led to them switching to 17 and 6. Although Sean Taylor‘s number (21) has yet to be re-issued, it is unclear yet whether it falls in to this category.
