Last year, when NFL Network’s excellent “A Football Life” series tabbed Matt Millen for the full-hour treatment, I wondered whether the powers-that-be had run out of ideas.
Fortunately, they haven’t. Via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, this year’s edition of the program will include an in-depth look at the late Sean Taylor.
It’s long overdue. Taylor, who entered the league in 2004 as a top-10 draft pick, quickly became one of the best young defensive players in the NFL. He overcame some off-field issues as he matured as a player and as a man, but then he was killed in his home during a burglary gone bad in November 2007.
Nearly seven years after his death, Taylor remains beloved in Washington and remembered throughout the NFL. Especially by Brian Moorman.
