Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has died in a Florida hospital, one day after being shot at his home.

Taylor's former lawyer, Richard Sharpstein, says he received the news this morning from Taylor's father.

Sharpstein calls Taylor's death a "tremendously sad and unnecessary event." He says the player was a "wonderful, humble, talented young man, and had a huge life in front of him."

Doctors had been encouraged last night when Taylor squeezed a nurse's hand. But Sharpstein said he was told Taylor never regained consciousness after being transported to the hospital.

Police are still investigating the shooting as a possible armed robbery.

    "Rest in Peace" Sean. Shot while trying to protect your girlfriend and her child while in your home; no greater act of kindness! You are missed by family, friends, and fans alike. Your family is in our prayers.
