When you think of nicknames, specifically NFL nicknames, what is the first one that comes to mind?
Names such as “Sweetness,” “Juice,” “Megatron,” and “Broadway Joe” are just some of the names that first come to mind. Hardcore NFL fans need no more information as they know who those players are just by the nickname.
Touchdown Wire recently put out a list of the top 101 nicknames in NFL history. It is a fun list. Players such as Brett Favre, Calvin Johnson, and, of course, Walter Payton are on the list. Others, such as Ickey Woods, are more popular for their name than their game.
How many former — and current — Washington stars made this unique list?
Seven current and former members of the Washington Football Team made Touchdown Wire’s list of the top nicknames.
