Sean Taylor's locker to go on display at FedEx Field

Two and a half years after Sean Taylor's death, the locker room memorial for one of the Redskins' most beloved players is being removed from Redskins Park. The locker will reappear before the start of the season at FedEx Field, situated in the club level and open for public viewing.

The locker had been mostly untouched since Taylor's death on Nov. 27, 2007, but it is no longer present in the locker room. In its place, wood paneling temporarily covers the empty space. A new locker is expected to be installed soon and a new player will occupy Taylor's old place in the locker room.

The decision to move the locker was surely a difficult one for the team's new leaders. On the one hand, everyone in the organization is eager to begin a new chapter and start anew after a couple of frustrating seasons. On the other, Taylor's death rocked the franchise -- from players to fans -- and his preserved locker was a very visible way for the team to honor his memory.

"We wanted to respect Sean's memory and find an appropriate place to display the locker he used every day at Redskins Park," General Manager Bruce Allen said in a statement provided to The Post. "We know how much Sean meant and still means to our fans and we are happy to be able to share this with them."

At some point between the team's April 24 draft party and the start of the season, the locker will be moved to the Club A tower of FedEx Field. Only club-level ticketholders will be able to view the locker on gamedays, but team officials say fans will be able to visit the locker during other events and during stadium tours.

It appears no decision has been made about what to do with Taylor's locker at FedEx Field, which had been similarly preserved.

The locker, located near the entrance to the locker room, was sandwiched between those of Santana Moss and Clinton Portis, teammates and friends who also attended the University of Miami. Because the team's minicamp, which began Friday, is closed to media, neither was available for interviews. But both players released statements to The Post supporting the organization's decision.

"I think the true fans, the people who've really been down with the Redskins from Day 1, win, lose or draw -- I think they'll have a great appreciation," Portis said. "I think it's really gonna hit home with a lot of 'em. I think it's gonna bring tears to a lot of eyes for the people who really can appreciate the work that Sean put in. That people have an opportunity to share and continue to be a part of his legacy ... it's gonna be great."

Said Moss, whose career at Miami missed Taylor's by a year : "I think of the years that have passed since his death, you almost have that closure now, knowing that he's never gonna be forgotten, and knowing that every time we step out on that field, we're still gonna have him with us."

Just days after Taylor died of gunshot wounds suffered in a home invasion, the locker was encased in Plexiglass, freezing in time Taylor's burgundy and gold cubbyhole with his clothes, jersey and helmet still hanging. His stool was placed inside, and cleats were ready to go. Up top, his shoulder pads sat upside down, alongside a framed photograph of Taylor and his daughter, Jackie. There was also a laminated item from Muscle & Fitness magazine, which cited Taylor as the game's strongest safety.

"I think it's something great for the fans to be able to experience because there's a lot of fans, a lot of true Redskins fans that come to every game, that would do anything for this guy, that just loved him that much," said Moss. " So I think it'll be great for them to be able to experience everything that we experienced by seeing that locker every day."

For the past two seasons, another daily reminder of Taylor could be found in the parking lot. Taylor was the team's defensive MVP on Sept. 17, 2007, which earned him a reserved parking space near the entrance at Redskins Park. The team left up that sign reserving his space until recently.

"He's one of those guys that, with the little time that he did share here, I think you have a lot of memories of his excellence and knowing what could've been if he was still here, man, it just hurts your mind to even think," said Moss. "It's great that they're honoring him in this way, and it's great that they're still paying their respects even after all these years."

"But what I don't get is that they seem to be utterly intent on blowing up the wrong part. This has been a top 10 defense for years."

Perhaps their aim is to rebuild the defense with younger, faster, more versitile guys playing behind a wall of journeymen defensive/nose tackle types.

We say the team needs picks, so can we hate how they get them?

I don't know.

As a club level holder, if anyone wants to trade ticket packages so they can see this, I'd love to!

Seriously though, I know many people want to use this as another reason to hate snyder. But it probably has everything to do with the fact the club level has indoor areas where the display won't be subject to weather, and nothing to do with selling tickets.

This move was strictly for marketing... dont be fooled by the gesture... the one part of the stadium they lack in ticket sales.... CLUB LEVEL. They could have had this out on the main concourse somewhere but no... only those who pay top dollare will get it.... what a scumbag! I hate Daniel Snyder....

I know the skins have the Ring of Honor, but do they have a “Redskins Hall of Fame” anywhere? I know some teams (like the packers, I think) have them. I have been to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and while it was cool, I was slightly underwhelmed. The skins should build their own HOF so a lot of the guys like Jacoby, Bostic, Monte Coleman, etc could get honored with busts or shrine areas. This would be a good place for Taylor’s locker.

As for speculation -- all hypothetical discussions must cease until further notice, as deemed by Skins930 to be close enough to actuality in order to be relevant.

I think dlhaze has the right idea about where ST's locker ultimately should end up. Since there isnt currently a skins hall of fame where should it go? I think Red made a good point about people who dont care vandalizing the locker. Especially the way other teams outnumber skins fans during division games. It only takes one drunken eagles fans to deface the locker and that may start a riot.

If you focus on "undertones hinting at the possibility of a trade" then you've completely ignored the undertones hinting at the possibility of a contract extension:

When asked about the possibility of receiving an extension offer from the Redskins, McIntosh chuckled again. "I don't know about that," he said. "But I think we're close to finding a resolution."

Look, maybe they're trying to trade everyone, and maybe not. Reid may be right, but he is stirring it up based on what you refer to as "undertones hinting at the possibility of a trade." But earlier you said "By the way, the "talk" is not just coming from media talking heads and fans. Or have you entirely missed the quotes by RMac?"

Alright, we're heading into the dangerously boring (even for me, who loves to argue) semantic discussion of 'who said what' and how they piece together.

Regardless, the discussion I was having with a couple posters in a previous thread was whether or not the prospect of trading Rocky McIntosh is worth it.

This was not a randomly generated topic with no evidential backing created by a media talking head. It was a topic generated by the fact that RM is not in camp, hasn't signed his tender, and when queried could not deny the suggestion that he has asked for a trade or a contract extension.

Nobody is saying they are trying to trade him. What we're saying is they shouldn't try to trade him (just as tens of posters in the previous two threads suggested they should).

Jeez, it must be a really boring day up here for someone like Skins930 to cry about hypothetical trade discussions.

Then Gibbs took on OC duties again..and failed until he brought in Al Saunders and Saunders brought in Todd Collins who knew Al's playbook and bailed out Gibbs 2.0 and his 1st round draft pick Jason Campbell.

"Sanctification"??

I guess I missed the event where ST21 was "made holy".

He was the best player on the team (not just the defense, but the team). By all accounts he had a rough start to his career and some legal tangles early on. At the same time he'd appeared to turn a corner in his life.

Considering the guy got murdered protecting his family from intruders trying burglarize his home, throwing the "thug" schtick out there is crass...it's not like he got shot up trying to buy crack or something...

JPMcC, yes, Sean Taylor was kind of a thug. But the preferred narrative up here is that in the years leading up to his murder, he had turned his life around. He had matured into a responsible family man, just as he had matured into a smarter, more effective football player.

That's what made his death so very painful to so many of us; it seemed to most of us that he'd finally found a better path and was becoming a person we could all be proud of, on and off the field.

Yeah JPM, Gibbs and his team mates liked him and saw him as a young man who was struggling but who had vastly improved. ST21 had to overcome a lot from his upbringing.
Drunk driving?...most of us have. Last issue he had was with some as'holes who stole some RV's (ATVs?) from him, and ofcourse he was gunned down by burglers.
Most of these people were people who were taking advantage of his generosity; he trusted them as acquaintances who he invited onto his property and in his home, who decided to steal from him.
Tragic, he was sort of "keeping it real" by not becoming part of the country club crowd and it screwed him.

I do NOT understand this. Taylor was an arch criminal with brandishment felonies, assaults, gun violations and felonies of several stripes. On the heels of that, he was murdered, and that's too bad. However, I'm compelled to compare this to the situation of the Eagles in 1990 or 91 when Jerome Brown was killed in a car accident. Jerome, while quite colorful, was a far more beloved figure on the Eagles and the Philadelphia public than Sean Taylor ever was. Taylor was cut more in the mold of Seth Joyner than Jerome, he was NOT that popular a figure when alive, yet he was enlarged in death, almost diefied. Jerome Brown's teamates maintained his little memorial set up at his locker, the Eagles dedicated their season to him, and went to the 2nd round of the playoffs, and that was that. But this is the third season since Taylor's murder. Enough already with Sean Taylor.

This sickness on this team, the tip of the hat to thugs, even one now dead for over two years is very difficult to fathom and more than a little disturbing. Why is the Danny catering to this, anyway? Does he think we don't realize what Taylor was?

I'm sure that this will be not received gladly by Redskins fans who don't think, but wasn't Sean Taylor kind of a thug? I have never understood the sanctification of this man. I am one who has images of Baugh and Monk and Grimm and Fischer and Green, not a man arrested for armed assault and driving under the influence, no matter how talented.

I am a fan who does think and he wasn't a thug. He wasn't fond of the media after they trashed him so he never talked to them. So they put this label on him. And as usual when a Black stand up for what he believes he labeled and thug or radical or militant or anything other than a man. You are either a redskin fan who doesn't think or some kind of pussy who fears any black man that takes a stand. Just like those pussy-ass beat reporters. If you want to know what a thug is? A Thug would be those knuckleheads who shot Sean

Dude, don't you watch "Human Target"? Christopher Chance always says, "nobody deserves to die." Despite his status as a fictional character, I tend to agree.

So just like Pacman Jones doesn't deserve to die for slamming a stripper's head against the stage and Ben Roethlisberger doesn't deserve to die for stealing panties the hard way, Sean Taylor certainly doesn't deserve to die for waving around a gun in an attempt to retrieve stolen property.

But something tells me you already know this and are just trying to get a rise out of everyone...

Step 2: Get a chair, stand on chair

Step 3: Reach for the small silver box

Step 4: Pull the .45 (handgun) out

Step 5: Check and see if there is a bullet in the chamber

Step 6: Put the muzzle of the .45 to your forehead

Step 7: Squeeze trigger

First and foremost read the post below yours, rinse and repeat. How was Taylor a thug because he got arrested? Oh I know its because he had tattoos. Usually if one doesnt know what they speak they should keep their mouth shut. Jerome Brown died in a car accident, Taylor was murdered by some people who befriended his siblings. Although both were unfortunate, Taylor's death was far more tragic. Brown died in the offseason, Taylor died in the middle of the season. I hope you do run into a real thug, and I hope they beat the dog shti out of you.

I do NOT understand this. Taylor was an arch criminal with brandishment felonies, assaults, gun violations and felonies of several stripes. On the heels of that, he was murdered, and that's too bad. However, I'm compelled to compare this to the situation of the Eagles in 1990 or 91 when Jerome Brown was killed in a car accident. Jerome, while quite colorful, was a far more beloved figure on the Eagles and the Philadelphia public than Sean Taylor ever was. Taylor was cut more in the mold of Seth Joyner than Jerome, he was NOT that popular a figure when alive, yet he was enlarged in death, almost diefied. Jerome Brown's teamates maintained his little memorial set up at his locker, the Eagles dedicated their season to him, and went to the 2nd round of the playoffs, and that was that. But this is the third season since Taylor's murder. Enough already with Sean Taylor.

This sickness on this team, the tip of the hat to thugs, even one now dead for over two years is very difficult to fathom and more than a little disturbing. Why is the Danny catering to this, anyway? Does he think we don't realize what Taylor was?

Posted by: JamesChristian | April 16, 2010 6:49 PM |

Not only do you not understand this you are a complete blithering masturbat!ng idiot and an enormous bloated sack of ass air. Sean Taylor was loved by this team, town, and it's fans. He had his ups and downs to be sure but as most people do as they get older he was maturing. He seemed to be over any perceived thugery and was becoming a good father and great teammate and football player. People like you are the seem jackass dooshbags that villified him in the media which in turn he shunned. So before you go off on some uneducated attemp to tread on someone's memory first attempt to remove your head from your rectum, wipe the smeared sh!t off your lips, put your helmet back on, and have someone read you the truth.

Sadly, there will always be the speckled bung-holes out there who find it necessary to trash a guy like Sean Taylor. He was an awesome force of nature; and while he had a few incidents, they were more about bad judgment than being a bad person or doing truly bad things.

I have no doubt at all the Sean would have matured into a true super-start on the field, and been a great teammate to have around. It just deepens the sadness to think about what he was on the verge of accomplishing.

Think back to those that came before Taylor on the Skins, think seriously and you'll realize what a tiny and meaningless figure Taylor was, except as an example to those who come AFTER him how not to conduct themselves.

Whoa whoa whoa, lets ease up on the suicide procedures, etc.

Sean Taylor was not a saint. Few people are. But no kid - that's right, no 24 year old kid - deserves to die the way he did.

The story of Sean Taylor is bigger than the person Sean Taylor because we (you and me, the fan) put this kid in the national spotlight, throw him wealth, fame, and seemingly everything a person could want, why? For our entertainment. Our team. Our fanaticism. We overlooked the bad behavior because he entertained us.

We didn't care that he was a thug; he was our thug. But he cared. Anecdotal evidence suggests that he was on the right path as a man, as a father, as a teammate FOR his family, FOR his daughter, FOR his teammates, FOR his fans.

And then this kid died (indirectly) because of this lifestyle that we condoned. He died before he could learn to deal with the pressures and responsibilities that we put on him.

So f*!ck you all who piss on his name when he's not here to defend it. He was on YOUR team. You rooted for him. And he paid for his sins.

Be it fortune, God, or blind chaos, I have been granted 5 more years in this life than Mr. Taylor, and every time he crosses my mind, I silently pray that I am making the most of my time here. Because in the blink of an eye, anyone of us could be Sean Taylor.

Remember his potential.

I mean, I don't even see where you're going with that...in my book an "arch criminal" is either a comic book villian or a guy who robs a McDonald's. Since ST is neither, you're way out in left field, buddy.

Look, there are a few up here who tend to deify ST and I get irked by that as much as anyone, but mourning the loss of #21 and recognizing him as a good, yet flawed man isn't out of the realm reality. I'm not sure what your angle is here, but I'd advise doing something more constructive with your time than coming on here trying to rile up Redskins fans with sladerous statements about a young talent gone far too soon.

If you didn't get teary-eyed upon the death of ST21 then you simply cannot call yourself a Redskins fan. The turnaround he was making with his life, and the sheer dominance he displayed in the defensive backfield were both awe-inspiring. It's not worship by any stretch, I'm just proud of his effort for my beloved Redskins (if anything, it's a bit of worship for the Skins). This kid was really turning his life around and on his way of perhaps becoming one of the best safeties of all time, just to be gunned down in his home and protecting his family.

An amazing talent gone well before his prime. For all you haters, you simply just don't get it. Too bad for you. RIP ST21.

Taunts and "arch-criminalities" aside - you are the one that seriously needs perspective.

Sean Taylor had 1 hit on his rap sheet. 1. That's it. O-N-E.

He was ACQUITTED by a judge of the DUI charge.

The one single solitary hit on his rap sheet came when he had a vehicle stolen from him and he stupidly went to confront the perpetrators himself, instead of calling the cops. He was 22 years old - mind you.

So for you to roll out this "crime after crime after crime", and "multiple felonies" and "arch criminal" nonsense is just ignorant.

You are ignorant of the facts of reality.

Now it's a free country and you are free to deify whatever players you choose. Many of us were moved by Sean Taylor's death for this reason:

Because despite his past reputation, he was a young man who by all accounts was turning the corner in his life and was then TRAGICALLY murdered in his own home protecting his family from intruders.

Now you don't need to deify him. I don't think anyone here is. But if that narrative does not move you on any level, then it is you who is the scumbag - seriously. And if you can't understand why other people are moved by this narrative (even if you are not), then you are a stupid scumbag.

From, "Living Scared"

When asked about their fears, players cite the same frightening flashpoints: New Year's Day 2007, when Broncos defensive back Darrent Williams was shot and killed outside a Denver nightclub while riding in his limo; November 2007, when Taylor was murdered; June 2008, when Oakland receiver Javon Walker was robbed and beaten unconscious near the Vegas strip; and September 2008, when Jaguars lineman Richard Collier was paralyzed and had to have his leg amputated above the knee after he was shot 14 times in what police say was a retaliatory shooting.

I remember a particularly juicy moment in a Skins-'Girls game at FedEx Field that I attended years ago. It was a Gibbs v. Parcells game and the Skins mauled the 'Pies 35-7 (or something like that).

One particular play happened when the 'Patties were pinned relatively deep in their own territory on a 3rd down play. Terry Glenn ran an intermediate crossing route, ST21 jumped on it and started barreling down like a freight train. Glenn totally quit on the route. He just pulled up and stopped running and the Bledsoe's pass just fell into the dirt.

Everyone in the stands started howling. Even the Cowpuke fans sitting around me just sort of hung their heads in shame and acknowledged that Glenn wussed out.

Truth be told, he did the smart thing. I can't blame him for quitting on that play...

Thing about it is that Darrent Williams was active in the Boys and Girls Clubs in Denver so building one and naming it after him makes a lot of sense. I don't know what sort of community service Sean Taylor did in the Washington area. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think his life really was football and that his days of "giving back" to the community were still ahead of him when he was murdered.

I can't blame these guys for standing as pat and firm as the teams they play for.

Pro football is a business for the players and the teams.

The players are independent contractors who can be traded away or cut at a calculated whim, so a guy must fight for his pay and position on the team.

And if the team trades Rocky McIntosh, I will wish him well.

I was thinking the same thing, rickyroge.

No one's had access to visit the locker in the last two years anyway. Why get your panties in a bunch now over this. At least it's being preserved in his memory. For Jeezus' sake, stop villifying Snyder. All he has done since he's owned the team is bring in big named player after big name player and coaches using his own money in an effort to just win. Yeah, it hasn't amounted to the results any of us wanted (including Snyder), but at least he's trying and it's always interesting to follow the team. Regardless, I'll always love the Skins.

Also, someone earlier made a statement that he came from a priveledged family. Totally inaccurate. He lived in an apartment growing up and is a well-documented self-made billionaire. A real hard working and innovative entrepreneur. Since when has making decisions geared towards making a profit a bad thing? It's called being an American. Join the club. He never said he bought the team to run a charity. If it's important enough to you to see the shrine either buy a ticket on the club level or buy a postcard.
