Landon Collins became a Washington Redskins fan because of the late, great Sean Taylor and Clinton Portis. He studies Taylor constantly like a lot of defensive backs, and wears #21 in his honor. Redskins owner Dan Snyder welcomed Collins to the team yesterday with a gift that really hit home with Collins, a signed Sean Taylor jersey.

No one has been able to wear #21 since Taylor’s tragic murder in 2007. Ryan Clark wore the number during practice when he was with the Redskins after receiving permission from Taylor’s fiance Jackie. It has been unofficially retired by the Redskins, and is likely to stay that way. I'm completely fine with leaving the number untouchable, but others have suggested it's okay to move on.
