Redskins Nation: Tribute To Sean Taylor

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 27, 2012 – 12:23 pm

It’s so hard to believe that just five years ago was one of the most tragic days in Washington Redskins history.

In the early morning of Nov. 27, 2007, the worst of fears were confirmed when Sean Taylor — one of the top, young talents in the National Football League — died from complications stemming from gunshot wounds suffered at the hands of an armed intruder at his Miami home just a day before. He was 24 years old.

The entire Redskins organization was left in shambles emotionally, but the truly tragic part about Taylor’s death was that he was survived by an 18-month-old daughter and his high-school sweetheart.

At the time of his death, Taylor had developed into one of the most feared safeties in the NFL. After being drafted fifth overall by the Redskins in the 2004 NFL Draft, the Miami product was named a first alternate to the Pro Bowl after a stellar rookie season. In 2006, Taylor had a team-high 129 tackles (89 solo), one interception and three forced fumbles and was voted to the Pro Bowl.

For his career, Taylor had 344 tackles (245 solo), 12 interceptions, 41 passes defended and four forced fumbles. He was named to the 2007 Pro Bowl posthumously, as well as inducted into the Redskins Ring of Fame.

Here’s a touching video tribute to Taylor produced by “Redskins Nation,” which airs Monday through Friday (at 5:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.) and Saturdays (7:30 a.m.):
