ESPN LA Radio Host Pays Emotional Tribute to Former Chargers Teammate Junior Seau

Suicide is a brutal act for close friends and family to comprehend, especially when the person choosing to end their life does not leave behind any explanation. According to early reports, that is apparently the case with former USC great, San Diego Charger and perennial NFL Pro Bowler Junior Seau, found today by police at his home in Oceanside.

For 710 ESPN radio host Marcellus Wiley, a 2001-02 Chargers teammate of Seau’s, it has been an especially devastating piece of news. He last saw Seau in November, and during this very emotional appearance on Sports Center, Wiley explained that at first he couldn’t quite believe the news, scanning the Internet for a retraction and even texting Seau directly:

Wiley also addressed the tragedy earlier today during his 10:00 am-2:00 pm 710 ESPN radio show “Max & Marcellus.” RIP.
