Taylor will be honored during a pregame ceremony before a game against the New York Giants on Nov. 30.
"It's appropriate that Sean joins our Ring of Fame after a stellar career cut short far too soon," owner Dan Snyder said in a statement. "His life touched so many of us in such deep and lasting ways. His presence is all around us, in our organization and among our fans."
A two-time Pro Bowl safety, Taylor played four seasons with the Redskins after being selected with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2004 draft.
Taylor will become the 43rd name on the Ring of Fame, which honors those who have made distinguished contributions to the Redskins. The ceremony will feature a tribute to Taylor, messages from former teammates and a presentation of a plaque to members of Taylor's family.
Raiders waive HallDeAngelo Hall's disappointing stint with the Oakland Raiders came to an early finish.
The Raiders waived the Chesapeake native less than eight months after they traded for the former Pro Bowl cornerback and gave him a $70 million contract.
The acquisition of Hall from Atlanta was a part of Oakland's plans to rebuild its defense.
The Raiders gave up a second-round pick to acquire Hall and also gave him a seven-year contract.
Chiefs add MacklinThe Kansas City Chiefs signed veteran cornerbacks David Macklin, a Menchville grad, and Ricardo Colclough and plan to use them as the main backups against San Diego to starters Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr. Reserve cornerbacks have let the Chiefs down in the final minute of the last two games, giving up touchdowns that cost Kansas City.
Brady's father suedA Massachusetts man has filed a federal lawsuit against the father of Patriots QB Tom Brady for allegedly failing to pay him about $600,000 in sales commissions and business expenses.
Richard Vasquez of Weston claimed in a suit filed last week that Tom Brady Sr. convinced him to forgo $415,000 worth of commissions by promising to make him an equity owner in his San Mateo, Calif.-based company, Thomas Brady & Associates Insurance Services Inc. But that never occurred, and he was later fired.
Vasquez is suing Brady for breach of contract. He is seeking about $1.8 million.
