Q:Does anyone know what became of my namesake? Or the Posse?

I mean, I know that Monk left for the Jets, but then came back and retired as a Skin (right?). And I think I remember Clark moving on to Atlanta or Arizona before eventually retiring. But what about the silent Posse member (and my personal fave), Ricky Sanders? Where did he go? When did he retire? And for that matter, in general, why did all these guys leave the Skins? Were there salary cap problems (I know it was the beginning of the whole salary cap thing too)? Were they deemed too old by Norv or whoever was coach?

Just some questions about my favorite group of receivers ever.

Also, one last question: Is it possible to get any jerseys of these guys? I imagine the easiest would be Monk, but what about Clark or Sanders. Thanks

I'm sure you can get those jerseys... get a customized one made if nothing else.

I don't know about Clark or Sanders but Art Monk went to the Eagles and according to one website I found, was with the Giant briefly.

I saw Art Monk in the Safeway parking lot in Great Falls, VA on 3/26/2005. It was AWESOME!

Ricky lives in Houston now. He signed with the Falcons for the 1994 season. I think he also signed with the Dolphins in 1995 with Gary Clark.

There were several contract disputes with Sanders and the Skins years before he was let go. Ricky was on an NFL edition of Toughman, the boxing show. He was a bit overweight and lost badly to a former Bills defensive back. I wish I could talk to him again. Me and him go back a little bit. We haven't seen each other since September of 1994 when the Falcons came to RFK.
