Redskins HOF lineman Turk Edwards (1932-39)

EXCERPT: In the 1930s, pro football was a small world compared with today’s game – on and off the field.  Turk Edwards was literally a large reflection of that.  Edwards, a 6-foot-2, 265-pound tackle, was gigantic for his day.  Called the “Rock of Gibraltar” and the “bouncing boulder,” among other nicknames, he played eight seasons (1932 to 1939) for the Boston Braves-Boston Redskins-Washington Redskins franchise.  Edwards was a tremendous blocker and tackler at a time when players often stayed on the field for 60 minutes.  He toyed with opponents using overwhelming strength and power, yet he had the speed to chase down ball-carriers.  He claimed All-NFL honors in 1932, 1933, 1936 and 1937.
