I am shocked to see this news that Junior Seau, a standout LB best known for his time with the San Diego Chargers, had been found dead of an apparent suicide in his apartment with a gun shot to his chest.
STOB's thoughts and prayers are with the Seau family as they deal with this tremendous and unexpected loss.
Full story from CBS News can be found here.
A question that must be asked is if concussions played a role, and if Seau, like former Chicago Bear David Duerson, shot himself in the chest and not the head to allow researchers to examine his brain? Duerson went so far as to leave a note saying he wanted his brain examined for concussion related disease.
Very sad news.
