Washington safety Sean Taylor was getting better every day, as a player and as a man. However, his life would be cut short after he shot during a home invasion in Miami.
A few weeks ago, the Washington Commanders unveiled a memorial to the late Sean Taylor ahead of their game against the Atlanta Falcons but the reaction on social media was underwhelming. It showed Taylor’s jersey and gear when he was a member of the then-Redskins. Some fans were upset that Washington went the mannequin route rather than an actual statue in or in front of the stadium.
On Sunday, a change was finally made.
“Just got this pic of the Sean Taylor installation, which has been changed. The facemask is finally taped. The jersey, which was Nike, is now Reebok. The socks are different and the ankles are taped too. Wish the team got this right the first time. But good fixes regardless,” Pete Hailey tweeted.
Washington selected Taylor with the No. 5 pick of the 2004 NFL Draft. He was a two-time Pro Bowler before he was killed in a botched robbery attempt in 2007.
Washington retired Taylor’s No. 21 last year.
He played for Washington from 2004 to 2007. He had 305 tackles, 12 interceptions and eight forced fumbles before his untimely death.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
