TMZ reports law enforcement agents were called to the scene around 10 a.m. after Seau’s body was found by his housekeeper.
Seau was a 12-time Pro Bowler, drafted fifth overall by the San Diego Chargers. During his career, he also played for the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots.
Prior to getting the devastating news, the Chargers tweeted, “We don’t have any information right now on the Junior Seau situation. We pray he’s ok.”
While the story continues to unfold, sources say Seau sent text messages to his family yesterday saying “Love you.” They reportedly all responded, not suspecting that anything was wrong.
Seau leaves behind three children and an ex-wife.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
