Beating the Redskins in Washington later this month just got that much tougher for the New York Giants.
Before New York plays Washington on Nov. 30, the Redskins will induct the late Sean Taylor into the franchise’s Ring of Fame. The ceremony will feature a tribute and messages from former teammates as well as the presentation of a commemorative plaque to members of Taylor’s family.
The game will come three days after the one-year anniversary of Taylor’s death.
“It’s appropriate that Sean joins our Ring of Fame after a stellar career cut short far too soon,” said Redskins owner Daniel M. 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.”
Redskins executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato added: “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. He still touches us every day in some way on and off the field.”
Taylor will be the 43rd member admitted into the Redskins Ring of Fame, which honors those who have made distinguished contributions to the team.
