A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for the 2007 murder of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor

A jury in Miami convicted Jason Mitchell of first-degree murder and armed burglary. Another man, Eric Rivera Jr., had already been convicted for his part in the botched burglary at the Pro Bowl safety's Florida home and received a 57-year sentence. Two other men are awaiting trial and a third has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and burglary. Taylor was a first-round draft pick for the Redskins in 2004 and was killed in the middle of the 2007 season. (ESPN)
