Art Monk may have been the lead receiver for the Washington Redskins for a long period of time, but he was paired up with another great Wide Receiver who was in his shadow somewhat. Of course, at 5’ 9, Gary Clark
was in a lot of player’s shadows.
Five times during Gary Clark’s career he caught for 1,000 yards. He was a consistent performer for the Redskins and was a big part of their two Super Bowl runs. Clark was small, but he was quick and sure handed and saved his best performances for the big games.
Clark’s problem on his resume is that as good as he was, he never led a receiving category and was not the best Wide Receiver on his own team. This factor makes it hard for him to be considered Hall of Fame caliber now matter how many passes he caught.
Should Gary Clark be in the Hall of Fame?
Definitely put him in! - 72.9%
Maybe, but others deserve it first. - 16.9%
Probably not, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. - 6.8%
