A trial has been delayed again for the man accused of shooting to death Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor.
A Miami-Dade County courts spokeswoman said Tuesday the trial of 23-year-old Eric Rivera Jr. will not begin Monday because of scheduling conflicts and availability of witnesses.
A new trial date will be set Monday. There have been numerous delays.
Rivera and four others from the Fort Myers area were charged with killing Taylor in 2007 during a botched robbery at the player's home near Miami. One suspect pleaded guilty to murder and burglary charges.
Rivera and the others pleaded not guilty and are being tried separately. Each faces a possible life sentence if convicted.
Before the NFL, Taylor starred at the University of Miami.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin II got what he wants, well almost. He got to start the first regular season game for Washington, but he didn’t get the win and it could be because he didn’t play the kind of game he is capable of playing. In the first half it looked like Griffin was holding back the style that makes him a winner. Of course all the dropped passed didn’t help...
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was a man trying to get back into the groove of things Monday night in their week one loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Brandon Meriweather's groin injury has kept him out of the Washington Redskins' opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The oft-injured safety is listed as inactive for Monday night's game.
Meriweather played in only one game last year, when he sprained his left knee in preseason and then tore the ACL in his right knee in midseason. His knee had recovered enough for...
When your team loses that alone is typically considered a pretty good reason for businesses not to give anything away. Free stuff is usually given out in celebration; not defeat.
That wasn't the case with the Washington Redskins Monday night.
Apparently the folks at Subway were not expecting much from Robert Griffin III and the rest of the team since all they needed...
Commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL has to pay attention to those who are offended by the Washington Redskins nickname.
Goodell told 106.7 The Fan on Wednesday he is ''always sensitive to what impacts on the league'' and that includes ''making sure that we're doing what's right here.''
He says, ''If we are offending one person...
Robert Griffin threw 4 interceptions all last regular season. Now he has 4 interceptions in his last 2 games combined, including the playoff loss to Seattle. It’s worth noting that Tom Brady had one of the worst seasons of his career in the season after returning from his ACL tear and he had 4 months extra to recover and had no prior injury. He also wasn’t nearly as reliant on...
The Washington Redskins' home opener on Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles was one of the most hyped openers in recent memory. While Chip Kelly's high-speed offense was a big deal, the primary storyline was the return of Robert Griffin III. We heard it all. We saw it all. Operation patience, the “blow it up” commercial, and the so-called riff between...
RGIII came out telling Lisa Salters that he felt like Hitch, probably because Gatorade bought the rights to it somehow. Through the first quarter, it was all about the Eagles running all of the plays and Washington making all of the derps. Alfred Morris fumbled twice, once resulting in a yet another Week 1 safety. RGIII threw a Sex Cannon-like interception and has otherwise looked...
According to OCNN Report, ESPN had a dedicated camera for Robert Griffin III in case he got injured on Monday night.

I’m sure major networks do this...
The injury report for Monday night's matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins is an uncharacteristically short one.
Only two players appear on the Eagles injury list, and only one of the two is still on the active roster. Cornerback Brandon Hughes is listed as out on the Eagles injury report. Hughes was cut on Saturday. Offensive tackle Dennis Kelly...
Handing out labels after Skins games. Tonight, a 33-27 loss to Philadelphia.
People Who Like Subway – Subway spokesman RG3 made his return to his non-Subway second job of “quarterback”, and the @Redskins twitter account gleefully touted a Subway coupon in a loss. With exclamation points! Eat your feelings after the loss, Redskins fans!
