I don't see anything confirmed but it is all over twitter right now, possible suicide.

I'm here in San Diego, and the reports look to be that Seau committed suicide. This just sucks. My prayers go out to his family.

Huge loss for the league and his family/friends. The ultimate pro and one heck of a linebacker.

It's a suspected suicide. Poor guy.

Sad loss of a Chargers legend. Even more sad if he did in fact commit suicide. I never got to see him play too much because living in the Northeast in the mid 90's Chargers games were barely ever on. I do remember the Super Bowl during player introductions when he came out. Sad loss.

Wow. Sad how so many famous people end up dead like this.

Heres a pretty brief article

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...182120394.html

Again. Just sad to see him go especially when you know he leaves a wife and 3 kids

So far all the NFL network is still talking about the Saints scandal. I wonder when they will bring this up, because Seau was still wildly considered the best LB in NFL history. A true legend was lost today.

Sounds like some people are flipping a dead mans signature. That is absolutely repulsive.

I'm interested in his auto, but only because I would like it for my HOF auto collection.

ESPN just flashed "Breaking News" but of course it was over the Saints' scandal again.

I actually picked one up so I could get it before the prices skyrocket.

I respected his game a lot and I'll be holding the card.

Wow This is Crazy and Very Sad.

I wonder If this will lead to an investigation by the NFL. To determine if concussion could have been a factor in his suicide.

If this is a suicide makes the SUV incident look like more than him just falling asleep at the wheel....yes it is "sad" news, but I do not feel sorry for anyone who takes their own life...not one bit...
