The replacement players of that infamous 1987 Redskins' team are finally getting their due.
Today, the Redskins announced that the players who filled in for the starters while the NFLPA went on strike will finally recieve Super Bowl rings. The team never lost with those players on the field, going 3-0 during their time in DC.
The most famous of those three wins came in a 13-7 win against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football and happened to be the last game played using replacement players. The entire experience was chronicled in Year of the Scabs, a documentary in ESPN's 30-for-30 series.
According to a press release sent out by the team, "Baron Rings will furnish each of the players’ rings, while diamonds will be provided by Uptown Diamond."
