Announced one last time as the “starting free safety” for the Redskins, Sean Taylor was inducted into the team’s Ring of Fame before Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.
With his mother, father, girlfriend and daughter huddled under umbrellas near the center of the field, Taylor’s name was unveiled on the upper-level facade of FedEx Field.
Running back Clinton Portis, Taylor’s close friend, then ran onto the field carrying a large burgundy flag with a gold No. 21. The Giants won the game 23-7 in a muddy and rainy affair.
