    Default NFL Legend Junior Seau Dead - Cops Suspect Suicide

    NFL legend Junior Seau was found dead in his home in Oceanside, CA ... and a law enforcement source at the scene tells us cops believe he shot himself.

    Seau was 43-years-old ... and leaves behind 3 kids and an ex-wife.

    Cops are currently at Seau's home -- located in San Diego County -- and were seen talking with a man who was inside the house and appeared distraught.

    We're told Seau sent text messages to his ex-wife and 3 kids yesterday saying, "Love you." We're told they all responded and didn't suspect anything was wrong. We're told he last saw his kids 3 weeks ago.

    Sources close to Seau tell us family members didn't notice any signs of depression in recent weeks.

    Makes me think he really was trying to off himself when he drove his vehicle off a cliff year before last. He claimed he'd fallen asleep at the wheel.

    I hate to read this. RIP.

    It seems like he was already on bonus time. In 2010, he drove his SUV off a 100-foot cliff, and landed at the bottom on a beach, without a scratch on him.

    ETA: I guess I posted at the same time as Laurent. In that 2010 incident, I think he was returning from the police station after being arrested for felony spousal assault with injury. Reading a little more about him, it seems like he was an angry, depressed guy who finally succumbed.

    I wonder if he was suffering from CTE like Duerson.

    Sad, but had he no thought for his children? That poor family.

    Very sad, respected him a ton as a player. Clearly he had some pretty serious issues, so sorry he didn't seek help, or if he did, that it wasn't more successful. RIP

    I was thinking about that, too. A lot of people seem to be wondering. But it sounds like he was kind of a depressed guy in general. In his Wiki entry it quotes that he had gone from a 4-sport all-star in high-school to a guy who couldn't even play his first year at USC because of his 690 SAT score. And that many of the people in his Samoan-American community were gleeful about it. He made it sound like depression and helplessness was endemic in his community or something - despite the fact that Samoans are WAY overrepresented (as a percentage of the population) in the NFL.

    I've always loved Seau, even when he was kicking the Chiefs' ass.

    If concussions have anything to do with it, it will continue the huge spotlight on this issue. The NFL has put on a good face but there's a lot more work to be done. The stats regarding athletes with two or more concussions are fairly startling.

    He was one of the good ones. I used to go to his Legend's parties all the time. I hate that he was so out of sorts enough to take his own life. RIP Brudda.
