The pig type is a reference to “The Hogs”, the nickname given to the franchise’s offensive linemen during the 1980s and 1990s under coach Joe Gibbs. That group, which got its nickname from offensive line coach Joe Bugel, included notable players Russ Grimm, Mark May, Jeff Bostic, Joe Jacoby, and Mark Schlereth. All of them played in at least one of the franchise’s three Super Bowls between 1982 and 1991. Grimm was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010.

Several members of The Hogs attended the Commanders’ game on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, the same day Major Tuddy was introduced.
