The following is a statement from Redskins Owner Daniel M. Snyder on the induction of Bruce Smith into the Pro Football Hall of Fame:
"We were fortunate to have Bruce as a Redskin for his final four playing years, and as a Redskin when he set the all-time sack record. He's a consummate professional in life, as he was in the locker room and on the field. He's a personal friend, and the epitome of a Hall of Famer. He still joins us at games, and Redskins fans will always feel part of his stellar career."
