WASHINGTON - Former Washington Redskins Sean Taylor is being remembered on the 10th anniversary of his death.
The young star football player was shot and killed by intruders at his Miami home in 2007. He was just 24 years old.
Taylor was considered one of the top defensive players in the NFL at the time of his death and was popular with fans and teammates.
He was drafted out of the University of Miami in the first round in 2004. Taylor was a two-time Pro Bowler who had a rare ability to deliver punishing hits while being one of the best at intercepting passes and creating turnovers.
