Junior Seau, the NFL legend and 10-time All-Pro linebacker, has been found dead. He was 43.
The athlete died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest in his Oceanside, Calif., home, according to TMZ.
Junior played for the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins, and New England Patriots with quarterback Tom Brady.
He also created the Junior Seau Foundation, with a mission “to educate and empower young people through the support of child abuse prevention, drug and alcohol awareness, recreational opportunities, anti-juvenile delinquency efforts and complimentary educational programs.”
He is survived by three kids and an ex-wife.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Junior‘s family during this difficult time.
