No heart for Art

Standout Redskins wide receiver Art Monk was not selected for induction in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Guard Russ Grimm, also a finalist, likewise did not make the final cut.

For the story, go to Hog Heaven.

The Redskins put together powerhouse teams in the 1980s, making four Super Bowl appearances between 1983 and 1992 and taking home the Lombardi Trophy three times. Monk and Grimm were key contributors to those teams. The only individuals of that group to make the Hall are Joe Gibbs and John Riggins.
