RIP Junior Seau: Legendary Linebacker Dead in Possible Suicide
Junior Seau, a legendary linebacker at USC, the San Diego Chargers and the New England patriots, has died at 43, multiple media sources are reporting via Twitter.
Police responded to a shooting at his Oceanside, California home and found him, according to TMZ, which first broke the story.
In 2012, Seau denied he was trying to commit suicide when the car he was driving went off the highway and down a 30-foot fall. He said he had fallen asleep. Some reports are indicating he killed himself today.
Seau doesn't have much connection with Houston except among football fans -- throughout the `90s, he was, to many, the premiere linebacker in the NFL.
