The North County Times reports that former Chargers and Patriots LB Junior Seau passed away Wednesday after a self-inflicted gunshot to the chest.
Seau's body was discovered by a housekeeper at his California home Wednesday. Seau was a 12-time Pro Bowler and is eligible for Hall of Fame enshrinement in 2015 after ending his playing career in 2009. He was voted first-team All-Pro six times. Seau should still be a shoo-in for the first ballot in Canton.
