How do we replace Sean Taylor?

I don't want this thread to sound like I'm being insensitve being so close to a tragic death of our beloved Sean Taylor. But, I'm just wondering how does the NFL help us recover a lose of a high quality player like that. I truely feel that he was a our best player on defense (if not the whole team for that matter). But, how do we get compensated personnel wise, or are we just SOL due to acts of God. This man was so instrumental to our team, and he alone led us to some crucial victories that will be hard to replace. If anybody knows anything about these rules I would appreciate it. Thanks Sean for being on our team.

He's irreplaceable. You go and find another S that's pretty good, but doubt that you will find a specimen like he was. You never know what you are gonna get whether they are 1 rounders or free agents. Case in point is Antonio Pierce he wasn't even drafted and look at him.

I don't know if you can replace him but your best shot at coming close would require picking a top 5 player in the draft.

I'm thinking in terms of the NFL giving us picks of some kind in the draft, and how would this whole thing impact our salary cap?

We are SOL. NFL will not do anything.

You can't! The question should be what will we do without him.

Re: How do we replace Sean Taylor?

We don't.. We find the best player via the draft, free agency or from within and do the best we can..

The NFL isnt giving the Skins or any other team extra picks because a player is killed or seriously injured (off the field) and can no longer play.

Might not be entirely true. The NFL awards compensation picks to teams who lose players to free agency. I'm not sure how a death like this works, he might be considered a lost player and we may receive comp picks. Or maybe it's handled entirely differently.

As for salary cap relief, we get none.

The best you can do is move Landry to FS and hope to draft of develop someone to take over at SS. That will never hold the possibilities that Taylor at FS and Landry at SS did. Taylor and Landry might have become the best safety tandem ever, but now we'll never know.

We could never replace ST, but I will say if LL continues to play like he played last week he will be the closest to ST we could ever get.

Re: How do we replace Sean Taylor?

Great defenses are made up of a lot of moving parts. Yes you need a good CB, FS and SS, but you also can make up for weakness in those areas with a good pass rush, which the Skins have not really had in a long time. Go get another good DE or Monster DT and don't worry about replacing ST for right now. Landry is going to be great not just good, so find someone to complement him and get better upfront. Our LBs are pretty good, no need to do anything there except maybe long term for M Washington.
