Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder issued the following statement following the passing of Redskins legend Sammy Baugh on Dec. 17, 2008:
"Sammy Baugh embodied all we aspire to at the Washington Redskins. He was a competitor in everything he did and a winner. He was one of the greatest to ever play the game of football, and one of the greatest the Redskins ever had. My thoughts and prayers are with his family tonight."
