Redskins to move Sean Taylor's locker to public area at FedEx Field

The Washington Redskins plan to share the tangible memories of slain S Sean Taylor with their fans.

The club revealed Friday that it would transfer Taylor's locker, which still has his uniform and possessions sealed behind Plexiglas, from Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va., to FedEx Field in Landover, Md. It will be displayed in public view at the stadium.

Taylor suffered a fatal gunshot after confronting robbers at his Miami-area home in November 2007.

GM Bruce Allen said the Redskins sought to include the fans in keeping Taylor's memory alive and that the club was "happy to be able to share this with them."
