Sad news out of California as TMZ is reporting that Junior Seau was found dead in his California home. This just in, so details are sketchy and rumors are going to be flying in by the minute. But Seau was allegedly found by his maid with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
The Chargers have released a statement: “Everyone at the Chargers is in complete shock and disbelief right now…We ask everyone to stop what they’re doing and send their prayers to Junior and his family.”
Unfortunately, it’ll only be a matter of time before Seau’s death will only be a catalyst for more concussion debate and lawsuits from former players. But, let’s take some time before all of that happens to remember a stand-up guy, beast of a football player and one of the baddest men on the planet during his time as a San Diego Charger through the 90s.
R.I.P. to the Seau and prayers up for the family.
