Sean Taylor, Pro Bowl Safety

Respected at work

Redskins safety Sean Taylor was selected posthumously as the starting free safety in the Pro Bowl scheduled for 10 February 2008. Sean was leading the fan vote at the time of his death and I can only imagine the voting went through the roof after that.

It takes more than fan votes to get to Honolulu, that is only one third of the votes. Players and coaches each constitute a third of the voting. Sean's selection reflects the impact his loss and death has had on the league.
