Junior Seau Found Dead At Home


I know this isn’t Rams news, but the NFL family lost a great member on Wednesday when Junior Seau was found dead in his home. The police are saying this is an apparent suicide, and he was found unconscious with a gunshot wound to the chest. It’s a sad day for everyone who loves the game and for everyone who got to see Seau play.

I know when I was growing up and falling in love with the game of football, Seau was one of the guys I loved to watch. He was an animal out on the field, and he also always had a smile on his face while doing it. He made the Pro Bowl 12 consecutive times and he was All Pro six times. He wasn’t good … He was great. He was inducted into the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame last year, and he certainly earned it.

From reading Twitter and several reports from around the league, it sounds like this was pretty shocking to everyone who knew Seau. He was loved by his teammates, so there are a ton of people out there who have been hit hard outside of his family.

It’s always sad when something like ths happens, and even more so when it’s somebody like Junior Seau. He will be missed by everyone who knew him and everyone who had the privilege of seeing him play.
