    Sean Taylor -RIP- How does it impact Washingtons Salary Cap???

    My heart does go out to the Taylor family.

    However I'm cursious hows does his death impact the Washington Salary Cap wise?
    Is it considered a retirement? Does insurance cover it. Just wondering how the league handles these situations.

    Wow - grim question, so soon after the fact, but I have to assume the NFL treats death like any other career-ending injury.

    You are right it's a tough question, but I found the answer.

    Partial article statement: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=3130491

    The family of slain Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor will receive a number of benefits, including a $600,000 life insurance policy, under terms of the league's collective bargaining agreement with its players.

    But according to NFL senior vice president of public relations Greg Aiello, the league has "no specific salary-cap rules" governing a player's death. And the NFL is still determining, Aiello said in an e-mail, the exact ramifications that Taylor's passing early Tuesday morning will have on his contract and on the Redskins' future salary cap.

    He was killed after the regular-season was over, not mid-season.
    So the cap impact was the same as if he'd been cut during the off-season.
