Mike Shanahan expects to see London Fletcher enshrined in Canton someday (John McDonnell/The Washington Post)
Linebacker London Fletcher is a future member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, in the view of Washington Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan.
“I don’t think there’s any question about him being a Hall of Fame-caliber player,” Shanahan said Wednesday. “I think he’s definitely a Hall of Fame-caliber player. His work speaks for itself. And to do what he’s done and not miss games along the way, be with different organizations and lead those organizations wherever he’s been, speaks volumes.”
Fletcher said Wednesday he is 99 percent certain that he will retire after this season. He has been selected to four Pro Bowls in his 16 NFL seasons and has played in 254 straight games.
