The Commanders will honor Sean Taylor on the 15th anniversary of his death, the team announced Tuesday.

Taylor died on Nov. 27, 2007, after intruders shot him in his Miami area home. The Commanders host the Falcons on Sunday.

In honor of his life and legacy, the Commanders will unveil the Sean Taylor Memorial installation and launch the limited-edition Sean Taylor Legacy Project merchandise designed and inspired by Taylor’s daughter, Jackie. Players will wear special “21” helmet decals.

The reveal of the Sean Taylor Memorial installation is the culmination of the Sean Taylor Memorial Project launched on Sean’s birthday earlier this year.

The merchandise collection includes a jersey, sweatshirts, T-shirts and hats, with all proceeds benefiting gun violence prevention initiatives.

“Sean’s life was tragically cut short but his impact continues to reverberate through our Burgundy & Gold family,” co-owners Dan and Tanya Snyder announced in a statement. “This Sunday, on the 15th anniversary of his passing, we honor one of our greats and his legacy by unveiling a permanent installation, so his memory is always with us when we take the field on gameday.”

  1. I can think of WAY better people to memorialize.
    People seem to forget that this was not exactly a stand-up fellow.

  2. I saw him pick off two of Favre’s passes in a game at Lambeau the year before his death.Made an impression on me as a player.

  3. Somebody contact Jackson Mahomes with this news.
    I’m sure he’ll want to make another spectacle of himself for this event.

  4. The honest truth is that Sean Taylor was going to be suspended from the team and have his pay withheld and that is why he was home. The vast majority of the fanbase was question Joe Gibbs and wondering why the team didn’t pick Kellen Winslow, given the issues with Taylor.

    WOW — believe it or not Kellen ended up the better pick?

  5. If you are a fan of football and life and you disrespect Sean Taylor’s short four years in the league, you are a fool. Wh played safety any better? Who was a better teammate?

    Ask Gregg Williams
    Ask Ryan Clark.

    Sounds like you have one tiny brain cell and all it does is cry out for attention.

  7. Anybody questioning this guy’s character and commitment to the team and football can go suck on an egg. He was a standup guy. He was charged for pointing a gun at someone who was stealing from him. Ultimately, his death underpins the fact that he was under assault for who he was all the time. He was not perfect, who among us are, but he was a good man & father that didn’t deserve what he got. RIP Sean Taylor.

    ———-

    He was home because he sustained a knee injury against philly the week prior and team policy was thatinjured players don’t travel to road games. Unless limping off the field in the third quarter was part of the teams master plan to suspend him, I suggest you hero your theories to yourself
