42: His age at retirment, making him the oldest player at his position (cornerback) in the NFL.

37: How old Darrell was when he ran back his last interception for a touchdown. That made him the oldest player in NFL history to do that.

4: The number of presidents who have been in office during Darrell Green's career (Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush).

28: His jersey number, which is likely to be only the second Redskins' number to be retired. (Right now, only Sammy Baugh's No. 30 is retired.)

295: The number of games Darrell Green has played in for the Redskins.

54: Number of interceptions.

19: Number of seasons he has had at least one interception. (This is the only season in his career that he didn't have an interception.)

5: Most interceptions in one season. (He did this three times, in 1984, 1986 and 1991.)

631: Number of yards Darrell has run for after interceptions.

83: His longest interception return.

10: Number of touchdowns scored (seven on interceptions, two on fumbles and one punt return).

4: Most interceptions off one quarterback (Randall Cunningham).

3: Most interceptions in a single game (Chuck Long of Detroit).

11: Most interceptions against a single team (the Philadelphia Eagles).
