Former Redskin Sean Taylor remembered through father’s football team

This week Washington Redskins safety Ryan Clark carried on his tradition of wearing number 21 during practices to honor his friend and late teammate Sean Taylor, who died in 2007 at the age of 24 after suffering a gun shot wound to the leg.
