Marcellus Wiley tearfully reflects on the life of former teammate Junior Seau

Shockwaves are still reverberating over the tragic apparent suicide of former All-Pro linebacker Junior Seau.  Seau died yesterday at the young age of 43.  Speculation has already begun as to the relationship of Seau’s apparent suicide and concussions and brain trauma brought on by a life in football.  Last year, former Bears safety Dave Duerson shot himself in the chest to preserve his brain for study.  The connection between Seau and significant head trauma may be studied in detail in due time, but the current time is about remembering Seau’s life.  One of the most touching tributes came yesterday from ESPN’s Marcellus Wiley, who played with Seau in San Diego.  Wiley was one of many who spoke out across several platforms on Seau’s quality not just as a football player, but as a human being.  It’s an unspeakable tragedy, and prayers and thoughts go out to everyone affected by it…
