Hanging on the inside facade of FedExField are some of the most hallowed names in Redskins history. The names, encircling the playing field from above, pay tribute to 49 members of the organization whose contributions still resonate and reverberate through franchise history. The Redskins Ring of Fame added its 49th member in 2016, inducting former General Manager Bobby Beathard during halftime of the team’s victory against the Minnesota Vikings on Nov. 13, 2016.
