A sad story today out of California, as TMZ has reported that former Patriots, Dolphins and Chargers linebacker Junior Seau is dead today of a self inflicted gun shot.  He was discovered dead after police were called to investigate a shooting at his Oceanside, CA home.  He was 43 years old.

He leaves behind a wife and 3 kids, whom he texted yesterday “I love you”.  They didn’t suspect anything was wrong based on these texts.

In a 20 year career, he amassed 545 tackles, 56.5 sacks and 18 INTs.

He will be missed by his family as well as the entire NFL community.
