Taylor was shot and killed in November 2007 after burglars broke into his South Florida home while he was home asleep with his girlfriend and young daughter. 

One man was sentenced to 57.5 years in prison for shooting Taylor, another man received a life sentence for first-degree felony murder and armed burglary and three others are waiting trial. 

Taylor was drafted by Washington in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft, after an All-American season at Miami. He was a two-time Pro Bowl selection and the team inducted him into their Ring of Fame in 2008.
