Seau passes away at 43

@SportsBata ..nuff said

Although it was an apparent suicide, it is a sad day in the #NFL and across the nation! Junior Seau surely is #HOF and literally gave his life to the game! He played in the #NFL for 20 years with the Chargers, Dolphins and Patriots; was a 10-time All-Pro and 12-time Pro-Bowler! He was considered one of the most ferocious linebackers to ever play the game! 

Seau was just about to embark on a trip to his native #Hawaii, and had surfboards laying around, when his girlfriend found him (Wednesday morning) with a gunshot wound to the chest and gun by his side. He had a strange incident in 2010, when he drove off a cliff as he “accidentally fell asleep” behind the wheel.

Many people believe a deep underlying depression grew from so many hits to the head. I agree with that as well as dealing with pain from injuries, and pure simple withdrawal from the game. Seau simply could not live w/o the game! R.I.P. Junior Seau!

Check out some family/close friends comments, Seau through the years, and sports world reaction to his death!
