Really tragic news this morning as Redskins safety Sean Taylor has died a day after being shot in his Florida home.
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."
Gut wrenching news for Taylor's family, his teammates, and his fans. He was only 24 years old.
Andy Reid had this to say on Taylor's passing.
This must hit home particularly hard for McDougle not only because Taylor was a friend and former teammate, but for the fact that Jerome himself was shot while at home in Florida.
