Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor shot in Florida, critical Sean Taylor, veteran safety for the Washington Redskins, has been shot in his home in Miami, Florida and his current condition has been listed as "critical". Miami-Dade County police was called to his home in the early hours of Monday by the football player's girlfriend and found Sean Taylor with at least one gun-shot on his body. According to reports, Sean Taylor was shot in the lower body, how many times remains unknown, but police confirmed that Taylor had to be airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Some reports indicate that his condition was last posted as critical, although the family of the NFL player has asked the hospital not to release any information about his current condition. What exactly cause the shooting is still unknown, "It could have been a possible burglary, it could have been a possible robbery. It has not been confirmed as yet," was the comment by the Miami police.

 The latest brush with the law on the rap sheet of Sean Taylor includes an altercation with a man by the name Ryan Hill in 2005, who later accused the Redskins player of brandishing a gun at him and repeatedly hitting him during a fight that broke out after Taylor and some friends went looking for the people who had allegedly stolen his all-terrain vehicles. Taylor made a deal with the prosecutors later and pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors in the assault case and was sentenced to 18 months probation,  and in exchange the felony charges were dropped.

 Sean Taylor was drafted in 2004 by the Washington Redskins from the University of Miami, in the first round, fifth overall pick, then signed a seven-year $18 million contract with the Redskins. This season he remains the top interceptor for the Redskins, but a knee injury sidelined him in the past two games. The Washington Redskins stated today that Sean Taylor was undergoing treatment at the Miami hospital, related to the knee injury.
