Sean Taylor is the main character of one of the saddest stories in the history of the NFL.
Taylor was a Pro Bowl safety for the Washington Football Team in the ’00s. Before joining the University of Miami, he was even considered the best athlete out of high school in 2001.
He chose to play for Miami because it was close to where he lived as a kid. After a great collegiate career, Taylor was a top-five pick in the 2004 NFL Draft.
What happened to Sean Taylor?
Washington’s safety murdered in his home
Although Taylor played for Washington, he kept a residence in Miami. This home was raided on November 18, 2007, while he was away. Days later, on November 26, the house encountered intruders once again.
However, this time, Taylor was present during the attempted burglary. His presence scared the intruders and after a brief encounter, Taylor was shot in the upper leg, causing massive blood loss.
Taylor was also known as a hard-hitter, and his most famous hit curiously happened at the 2006 Pro Bowl. After the AFC team ran a fake punt, the safety leveled punter Brian Moorman.
