NFL Legend Junior Seau was found dead today at his California home. TMZ reports that cops are currently at Seau’s home outside of San Diego and are investigating a shooting.

Seau was 43-years-old and is survived by his ex-wife and three children. While there has yet to be confirmation, there are reports that his death was a suicide.

In 2010, Seau drove his car off a cliff hours after he was arrested for reported domestic abuse of his wife. The NFLer later denied that he was trying to kill himself.

Seau is now the eighth member of the 1994 AFC Champion San Diego Chargers to pass away.

More details on his death are forthcoming.

Update: Junior Seau’s mother has spoken out on the death of her son. The NFL star’s mother was in tears and told reporters that she asked God to take her instead.
