The Washington Redskins have announced that the late Sean Taylor will be added to the team’s Ring of Fame prior to the November 30, 2008 home game against the Giants.

Taylor died on November 27, 2007 as a result of a shooting that occurred during an invasion of his Miami-area home.

“It’s appropriate that Sean joins our Ring of Fame after a stellar career cut short far too soon,” said owner Daniel Snyder. “His life touched so many of us in such deep and lasting ways. His presence is all around us, in our organization and among our fans.”

“Sean was developing into one of the best to ever play the safety position, as well as becoming a role model to those who knew him,” said Redskins executive V.P. Vinny Cerrato. “He still touches us every day in some way on and off the field.”

The Redskins are 10-4 in regular-season games since Taylor’s passing. He will be the 43rd member of the team’s Ring of Honor.

Class move. Taylor was on his way to being a great.
