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.
But Monk and other alumni told stories about ex-players being asked to leave when they'd visit Redskins Park, and how the ties that were there under former owner Jack Kent Cooke just weren't there any more.
Hearing Monk say such a thing might be puzzling to outsiders, particularly those who form the team's rabid fan base.
