Junior Seau Passes Away at the Age of 43, Chargers Retire No. 55

Update: The San Diego Chargers have retired Junior Seau’s No. 55 at a memorial for the legendary linebacker held at Qualcomm Stadium. Over 20,000 fans turned up to farewell Seau.

Junior Seau was found in his Oceanside, California home with a gun shot wound to his chest. He was later declared dead and investigators are ruling the death as a suicide. Many question Seau’s death and do not believe that he would kill himself. Investigators also found a gun near Seau’s body upon investigation. It is clearly a sad day for Seau’s family, the NFL, and NFL fans everywhere. We have lost a very special and talented player today. There is no question that Seau will be inducted into the hall of fame, but it is a shame that he will not be able to see his own induction when the day comes.
