The Chargers lost a legend in Junior Seau. He was found with a self-infliected gunshot wound to the chest by his girlfriend. His family has decided to donate his brain to science, to see if his erratic behavior the past year or so may have been due to Brain damage. Regardless of whether or not it's the reason for his suicide, the community has taken notice and the NFL hopefully gets forced into more safety changes, and we stop celebrating hard hitters and start celebrating players who actually wrap up when they tackle.
In other news:
The NFL draft is over. The Browns had 2 picks in the first round. Trent Richardson is a damn good runningback, and I wish him well. They also took Brandon Weeden, a decent QB who also happens to be 28 years old at the time of drafting. Weeden isn't bad but he wasn't a first round pick, and it would appear the Browns did not draft well at all outside Richardson. Time will tell. I hope Weeden lights it up.
Also the Dolphins took Ryan Tannehill.
