LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -Announced one last time as the ``starting free safety'' for the Washington Redskins, Sean Taylor was inducted into the team's Ring of Fame before Sunday's game against the New York Giants.
With his mother, father, girlfriend and daughter huddled under umbrellas near the center of the field, Taylor's name was unveiled on the upper-level facade of FedEx Field, joining 42 other Redskins greats.
Taylor's father, Pedro Taylor, told the crowd that his son used to say of the fans: ``When you guys make the stadium rock, he begins to rock.''
``Right now,'' Pedro Taylor added, ``Sean is rocking in heaven.''
After the ceremony, the public address announcer said: ``Starting at free safety for your Washington Redskins, No. 21, Sean Taylor.''
Running back Clinton Portis, Taylor's close friend, then ran onto the field carrying a large burgundy flag with a gold No. 21.
The game was the first following the one-year anniversary of Taylor's death. He was shot in his Florida home last Nov. 26 and died a day later.
