Four years ago today, Redskins safety Sean Taylor died after being shot by intruders who had invaded his South Florida home.
He was only 24.
“It flies by,” Redskins teammate Santana Moss told WUSA. “It’s four years, but it just feels like yesterday.”
Safety LaRon Landry, a rookie in 2007, said he still thinks every day about the tandem they could have become.
“[Sean] was really coming into his own,” safety Reed Doughty said. “We were talking in the [defensive back meeting] room the other day about how young and good he was. Anybody who plays free safety for the Redskins is always going to be compared to him and I’m not sure many can compare.”
Not many can, in Washington or elsewhere.
