Seau’s suicide prompts worries about NFL’s physical, emotional aftermath
Junior Seau appeared happy and outgoing to players and most who knew him. What went wrong that caused him to fall into depression after his career ended? Are head injuries to blame in this case? Those who played with him and against him are concerned.
“It’s like these brain injuries really turn you into another person,” says Green Bay Packers tight end Tom Crabtree, who’s played two seasons in the league. The apparent suicide of Junior Seau has NFL players worried about their health, physically and mentally, as well as their post-career well-being.
“Most people find out about the real world when they’re 18 or 19. Ex-NFL players find out about it at 30 or 35,” says 39-year-old Jon Kitna, a former NFL quarterback. He retired after the 2011 season and now teaches at Lincoln High School in Tacoma, Wash.
