Santana Moss takes no solace in Sean Taylor verdict

Wide receiver Santana Moss said he took no solace in the conviction Monday of a 23-year-old man in the 2007 slaying of Moss’s former Washington Redskins teammate, safety Sean Taylor.

Moss said he hadn’t been following the trial.

“I’m not one of those guys that’s gonna follow something because I feel like what was done is done,” Moss said. “It’s nothing for me to sit back and keep poring over and letting it play over and over in my head. It wasn’t something that you want to remember. Due to the fact that the guy’s trial has waited this long, I feel like whatever comes out of it, justice will see its way through.”

Eric Rivera Jr. was convicted Monday of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Taylor in what was described as a botched burglary at Taylor’s home.
