Former Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis and linebacker LaVar Arrington remembered some of what made legendary safety Sean Taylor such a great person and player Wednesday morning, on the set of NFL AM before Friday’s airing of ‘Sean Taylor: A Football Life’ on NFL Network at 9 p.m.
Portis – who played with Taylor at the University of Miami and with the Redskins – said Taylor was “one of the greatest ever” on the field, and “really low-key off of it.”
“It would shock people to know his hobbies, or what he was passionate about,” he said. “When you look at a guy that’s so ferocious on the field, you wouldn’t believe that Sean watched as much film as he watched [and] what he was into – video games, cooking, four-wheelers.
Arrington, meanwhile, said Taylor always wanted to be the best that he could be.
“His determination and his drive – everything that appeared for me – was a dude that just wanted to be the best he could possibly be,” Arrington said. “And be the best dude around us as a group of guys, while being the best on the field.”
Below is a preview for Friday’s documentary:
