Redskins safety Ryan Clark will wear the No. 21 during practice in honor of the late Sean Tahylor.

Clark told LaVarr Arrington and Chad Dukes on 106.7 The Fan why he wanted to wear the number.

“Every time somebody asks me why I wear a different number to practice, I get to tell Sean’s story,” Clark said. “I get to tell people about the guy I love. I get to tell people about the guy who was possibly on his way to being the greatest safety to ever play the game. And that got cut short. He never got to realize his full potential. But it gives me the opportunity to remind people of him.”

Taylor’s former fiancé gave her blessing.
