Flashback Friday: Art, Gary & Ricky – Posse Love Video

The Posse

Over the years the Washington Redskins have had several great players. The 1980’s and 1990’s were times when the talent of the Redskins truly shined the brightest.

Three major reasons for that were Art Monk, Gary Clark and Ricky Sanders, or as Redskins fans know them, the Posse. This trio was one of the best receiving corps in the NFL during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s and is our feature this week on Flashback Friday.
