11 Years Later, Sean Taylor’s Murder Still Hurts for Redskins Fans

Eleven years later, the murder of safety Sean Taylor still hurts for Washington Redskins fans.

Taylor was defensive standout in the league over three-and-a-half seasons, inteercepting 12 passes and forcing eight fumbles over 53 starts.

In 2007, he had established a career high five interceptions over just nine games before he was sidelined by injury, which led him to be with family in Miami on Nov. 27, 2007, when he was murdered by intruders while defending his family in his home.
