Sean Taylor (improvisor) is not Sean Michael Maurice Taylor (April 1, 1983 – November 27, 2007) was an American football free safety who played for the NFL's Washington Redskins franchise. Collegiately he played for the University of Miami, where he helped lead the Hurricanes to a national championship in 2001. Due to his ferocious style of hitting, several of his pro teammates nicknamed him "Meast," a reference to "half man, half beast."<ref>Template:Cite web</ref><ref>Template:Cite web</ref> Among his many football accomplishments, Taylor was widely considered one of the hardest hitting defensive secondary players in the NFL.

Taylor was murdered on November 27, 2007, at the age of 24, dying from critical injuries from gunshots by intruders at his Miami area home on November 26, 2007. His death led to an outpouring of national support and sympathy, especially in the Washington D.C. area where Taylor was a fan favorite as a Redskin and the Miami area where Taylor had been a standout high school and college football player. In honor of Taylor, for the first play of the first game after he died, the Redskins defense came out with only 10 players instead of the usual 11.

That is not who Sean Taylor (improvisor) is.
