NFL star linebacker Junior Seau was found dead at his home in Oceanside, California. Early reports are that it was suicide and that he shot himself in the chest. Seau made this field famous in his seasons with the San Diego Chargers where he literally transformed the position of linebacker in the NFL. Scouts were always looking for the next Junior Seau. Seau was a 12 time Pro Bowl selection and considered by experts to be one of the best linebackers to ever play football. Seau's mother was weeping uncontrollably according to ESPN and simply quoted the following to reporters.

"I don't understand ... I'm shocked," Luisa Seau cried out.

Her son gave no indication of a problem when she spoke to him by phone earlier this week, she said.

"He's joking to me, he called me a `homegirl," she said.

Seau was 43 years old. Investigation into the apparent suicide continues.
