Topic - Art Monk
Art Monk never expected to hold the franchise single season record for receptions for 29 years. Now the record has a new owner.
Pierre Garcon sets the new single-season franchise record for receptions.
So Art Monk, former Washington Redskins player, is the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit against the National Football League and a helmet manufacturer for difficulties resulting from concussions during his football career ("Hall of Fame receiver Art Monk latest to sue NFL," Web, Thursday). This is getting ridiculous.
Art Monk, the Hall of Fame wide receiver who played 14 seasons for the Washington Redskins, sued the NFL and helmet manufacturer Riddell, Inc. over "short term memory loss, headaches and speech difficulties" from multiple concussions sustained during his career.
Dozens of Washington Redskins greats from decades past lined the field for the last day of minicamp practice. They mingled, ate barbecue and looked ahead to an afternoon bowling outing with members of the current team.
And, on Sunday evening, Monk said he was proud to pass the baton.
He added: "Having set the record myself, I understand how exciting it is. Records are meant to be broken."
