’10 for 80’ Redskins Legacy: Roy Jefferson

EXCERPT:

They called him “Sweet Pea.”

With his long, graceful strides and sure hands, Roy Jefferson was a go-to guy on the receiving end for the Redskins in the 1970s.

Playing in D.C. from 1971 to 1976, he caught 208 passes for 3,119 yards and 16 touchdowns. He was a consistent threat who helped increase the Redskins’ level of success during the historic era of coach George Allen, when they went to the playoffs five times, including an appearance in Super Bowl VII.

“He was a hard-nosed receiver whose only goal was to catch the ball no matter where it was,” Mike Bass, a Redskin cornerback who teamed with Jefferson for five seasons, said several years ago. “He was absolutely fantastic, and I don’t think he ever got the credit he deserved.”
