Any other news around the NFL is dwarfed this morning by the death of Sean Taylor of the Washington Redskins.
Taylor, 24, was shot Monday during a break-in at his home.
Known as a tremendously talented, ferocious-hitting yet erratic safety, Taylor had a somewhat troubled past. Yet teammates said Taylor had put that behind him.
Taylor's girlfriend and 1-year-old daughter were uninjured in the break-in. My condolences to them, the rest of Taylor's family and to the Redskins organization.
