TMZ reported Wednesday afternoon that former Patriots linebacker Junior Seau was found dead in his home in Oceanside, California.
According to the Web site, police suspect Seau committed suicide.
Seau, 43, spent the first 13 seasons of his career with the Chargers, then played three years with the Dolphins before signing with the Patriots in 2006. He spent parts of four seasons (2006-10) with the Pats.
Seau drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, California, in 2010, hours after being arrested for allegedly attacking his girlfriend. He later said he had fallen asleep at the wheel and was not trying to kill himself.
