Skins.com: Taylor Is Excused From Mini-Camp
Head coach Joe Gibbs and the Redskins released a statement on Monday afternoon saying that safety Sean Taylor has been excused from attending the remainder of the team's voluntary off-season workouts as well as the June 17-19 mini-camp. Taylor is involved in a legal matter in Miami.
"As an organization, we feel it's better for Sean to concentrate on these personal issues and hopefully get this squared away for him," Gibbs said.
The full text of the statement is as follows:
"Everyone here is aware of the situation involving Sean Taylor this past week in Miami.
"The League has a Personal Conduct Policy that governs this type of situation and we will be discussing the matter with League officials. All questions regarding the League's Personal Conduct Policy should be directed to the League Office.
"With that in mind, we have informed Sean's agent that, as of today, Sean is excused from participating in the remainder of the club's voluntary off-season workout program and the upcoming mandatory mini-camp beginning on June 17.
"As an organization, the Redskins believe that it is in Sean's best interest to focus on his personal and legal issues at this time."
