It has been confirmed that former linebacker of the San Diego Chargers, Junior Seau, 43 committed suicide. Police have also said a gun was found near his body. Some sources claim that concussions that occurred during the NFL season are partially to blame for the list of suicides of NFL players, including Seau.
Seau started his career as a San Diego Charger and then later moved on to the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. He leaves behind an ex wife and three children. He will be most remembered for his time with the Chargers and his contributions as one of the greatest defensive players who ever has played the game.

The combine has passed and the numbers are in. As a QB Robert Griffin, III was the best at the 40 yard dash this year at the combine in Indianapolis. Does that change the minds of scouts on picking Griffin before Luck? Only time will tell whether the NFL prospect will go before Luck and be the top QB picked in the draft.
Robert Griffin, III
40 Time: 4.41
The teams in need of a QB have not changed, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, and the Seattle Seahawks. Luck although still projected to be picked before him, Griffin has a chance for a close second looking at his performance during the combine. During his Heisman year at Baylor University Griffin completed 291 passes with 402 attempts for 4,293 yards. Griffin has what it takes to survive in the NFL and to bring any team back to its glory days. Primarily, Griffin has no apparent weaknesses and with a strong receiving core around him he can surely be a force to reckoned with. His ability and accuracy are in comparison to last season’s Offensive Rookie of the Year, Cam Newton.
