What a weekend to be a Redskins fan. Two legends are officially enshrined as members of the hallowed Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Then the current crop of Washington Redskins kicks off the NFL preseason in the annual Hall of Fame game against the Indianapolis Colts one night later.
August 2nd marked the beginning of what Redskins fans were looking forward to since February. Former cornerback Darrell Green, who spent 20 years in Washington, and former wide receiver Art Monk, the Redskins all-time leading receiver and retired as the NFL’s most prolific pass-catcher, officially became members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
