Sean Taylor was a Pro-Bowl safety for the Washington Redskins from 2004-2007 before being murdered in his home on November 27, 2007. Taylor always was and always will be my favorite athlete. On Friday September 26, 2014, the NFL Network aired an episode of their series titled “A Football Life.” The episode that aired last Friday featured a more in-depth look into the person that Sean Taylor was on and off the field.
This GIF is meant to pay homage to Taylor’s life. The GIF is a play from the final regular season game of the 2005-2006 season against the Philadelphia Eagles. During this play, Taylor picks up a fumble and runs the ball into the end zone, clinching a Redskins playoff birth.
