Taylor Excused From Minicamp

The Redskins have excused safety Sean Taylor from the rest of their voluntary workouts, as well as the mandatory minicamp later this month.

With his recent arrest on a felony charge of aggravated assault, the organization decided it best if he didn't participate. Taylor could face an extended prison sentence if convicted. In a statement released this afternoon, the organization said,
"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."
