Longtime San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau has died from what police are characterizing as a possible suicide. Seau, 43, played in the NFL for 20 years, and 13 of those came in San Diego. Current Chargers head coach Norv Turner released a statement on the awful news out of San Diego.
"I have no words to describe the passing of Junior Seau. It is a sad, sad day not only for me, but for the whole sports community. I worked with Junior here and later in Miami. I can tell you no one had more character and true leadership ability than Junior. He brought passion to the game of football that was unmatched. His commitment to charitable causes in the community was inspiring. It was an honor to know him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family."
Seau's charitable contributions to the San Diego community were also noted by Chargers team president Dean Spanos.
Chargers fans are remembering Seau over at SB Nation's Bolts From The Blue.
