Sean Taylor, 1983-2007

Washington Redskins defensive back Sean Taylor, one of the best safeties in the NFL, has died.

He was 24.

From FOX News:
MIAMI — Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor died early Tuesday, a day after he was shot at home. He was 24.

Family friend Richard Sharpstein said Taylor's father told him the news around 5:30 a.m.

"His father called and said he was with Christ and he cried and thanked me," said Sharpstein, Taylor's former lawyer. "It's a tremendously sad and unnecessary event. He was a wonderful, humble, talented young man, and had a huge life in front of him. Obviously God had other plans."

He said Taylor died early Tuesday at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, where he had been airlifted after the shooting early Monday.

From an Eagles fan, my thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and also to the Redskins organization. I do indeed hope he is with Christ.
