R.I.P. Junior Seau

One of the best linebackers in the NFL of the last 20 years as well as a San Diego icon, Junior Seau was found dead at his home in Oceanside, California this morning. He was found at his home by a housekeeper with a gunshot wound to his chest and suicide is being suspected. He was 43 years old. Seau was a beloved member of the Chargers as he was a San Diego native who after getting drafted fifth overall by the club in 1990 made the Pro Bowl twelve times, was an All-Pro ten times, was named to the All-Decade team for the 1990s and was a key player in the team's Super Bowl berth in the 1994 NFL season. Seau also played for the Miami Dolphins from 2003-2005 and for the New England Patriots from 2006-2009.

The Chargers released a statement via Twitter.
