San Diego Chargers Great Junior Seau Dies In Shooting At His Home

Longtime San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Tiaina Baul “Junior” Seau has died at a shooting at his home the team is reporting.

Details is the shooting surrounding Seau’s death have not been released but it’s suspected Seau shot himself. The investigation is ongoing. Previously in October of ’10, Seau drove his car off a cliff after a domestic abuse arrest. Sadly, he’s the 9th San Diego Charger to die off the ’94 Super Bowl squad.

Seau was 43 and survived by three children.

The 10 time All Pro and 12 time (consecutive) Pro Bowler was one of the most competitive linebackers of his era and known as a consummate teammate. Drafted 5th overall out of USC, Seau played for the Chargers, Dolphins and Patriots before retiring in 2010. He left the game amassing 1.849 tackles, 56.5 sacks, 18 picks, 21 pass deflections and 3 forced fumbles.

He was a member of the NFL 1990’s All Decade Team and AFC Player of the Year in 1994 (155 tackles). Seau played in two Super Bowls…1994 (49-26 loss to San Francisco) and 2007 when the undefeated Patriots lost to the New York Giants 17-14.  The game just lost one of its legends. He will forever be known as one of the best Chargers to have ever put on the uniform and one of the greatest NFL players of all time.

Marcellus Wiley is very emotional remembering his friend…

Seau was a bad dude. Look at his expression when he puts on the jersey. He was everything San Diego Charger football…

His Mom breaks down speaking about Junior’s death. Listen to her carefully…

Did you hear her? One question? Who kills commits suicide with a shot to the chest? Is it just me or is it something just doesn’t sit right? I could be wrong. Just asking.

    Man, we’ve had some oddities in recent years as far as deaths are concerned. I hate that “factoid” about that Chargers SB squad…very depressing!
