Washington Football Team attempting to honor Sean Taylor again
The Washington Football Team honored former star safety Sean Taylor earlier this season to mixed results. Well, Washington has further plans to honor Taylor in a special way next season, as reported by NFL Network’s James Palmer.

That is a cool way to honor one of the greatest players to ever put the Washington Football Team uniform on. Washington fans will surely enjoy seeing Taylor’s memorial at FedEx Field next season.
Taylor rose to stardom as a member of the Washington Football Team during Pro Bowl seasons in 2006 and 2007, becoming known for his hard hits and big playmaking skills. The sky was seemingly the limit for Taylor’s NFL career before it was tragically cut short. Taylor was shot and killed in his home by an intruder in November of 2007.
The Washington Football Team is clearly doing its best to honor Taylor, one of the franchise’s finest players. Hopefully, Washington is doing it for the right reasons.
Their motives came under question earlier this season when they held a number retirement ceremony for Taylor in the midst of an ongoing investigation on an organizational scandal involving owner Dan Snyder.
There are undoubtedly those who will question Washington’s intent behind the planned unveiling of the statue, though at the end of the day, it’s a nice way to honor Sean Taylor, who will forever be a part of the franchise’s storied history.
