Guard Dick Stanfel, one of the original 70 Greatest Redskins, was named a Pro Football Hall Of Fame finalist for the 2016 class, along with quarterback Ken Stabler.

Both passed away this year and were selected by the Hall's Seniors Committee.

Stanfel – a University of San Francisco product – spent his final three NFL seasons with the Redskins after a trade with the Detroit Lions in 1956, earning Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors during each season in burgundy and gold.

According to his Greatest Redskins profile, Stanfel's most memorable moment with the team "occurred when he came out of a game and the entire stadium gave him a standing ovation."

Stanfel was named to the 1950s All-Decade Team and nominated twice for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, once in 1993 and again in 2012.
