Long time NFL veteran and legendary linebacker Junior Seau has been found dead in his Oceanside, California home and according to TMZ, law enforcement officials are looking into a possible shooting.

Seau, who was a beast of a linebacker for several NFL teams like the Patriots and Dolphins, was 43 years old and is survived by his ex-wife and three kids.

It's been reported that he recently texted his family and simply said "Love You" to which they responded normally, not suspecting anything out of the ordinary. He last saw his kids just three weeks ago.

Family members tell TMZ that Seau didn't seem to be depressed at all, but depression could have possibly played a role.

Back in 2010, Seau stated that he wasn't trying to kill himself when he drove his SUV off of a cliff after being arrested for a domestic violence incident.

UPDATE: It was discovered that Junior Seau committed suicide. He was found with a gunshot wound to the chest.
