Shot himself in the chest like Duerson so his brain could be examined for signs of CTE. That's what I've read so far. Sad, sad, sad. :(

In a side story I read that he is the 8th player from the '94 Chargers team to die young. It did not go into details on how the others died. Just the same that is kind of spooky.

I would guess that there is probably more involved that just head trauma, I would be curious to see what his financial situation was.

Curious to see the percentage of suicide percentage of former nfl players compared to the national average.

a lot of that has been due to poor ownership of the franchises there.
