Sean Taylor remembered

They don't make them like Sean Taylor anymore. The hard-hitting safety was well on course for a Pro Football Hall of Fame career before tragedy struck. His life was cut cruelly short at just 24 years old. He remains one of the most beloved players in Washington Commanders franchise history to this day.

While Taylor's legacy lives on, there will always be a case of what might have been regarding the former Miami standout. How far would his peak have reached? Would he have done enough to be enshrined in Canton? How far could Washington have gone with his exceptional talent leading the charge?

Unfortunately, we'll never know.

Taylor was named as one of 10 NFL notable players who had their careers sadly cut short too soon by Nate Lunak from Total Pro Sports. It's not much, but it shows the esteem in which he was and is held around the league.

"[Sean] Taylor was on pace for such an amazing career. In 2006 and 2007 he was named to back to back Pro-Bowls. He had gained a reputation for being one of the most feared defenders at just 24 years old due to his ability to lay anyone out. In the middle of 2007, he was tragically shot by intruders in his own home in Miami and died the next day from the injuries sustained. In his honor and due to his incredible play during the season he would be named Second Team All-Pro."

Taylor will never be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to see him play. The sooner Josh Harris' ownership group honors his brief yet overwhelming impact by improving the tribute Dan Snyder left behind, the better.
