FORMER GIANTS linebacker Harry Carson says he’s not surprised by Junior Seau’s tragic death, which has been ruled a suicide.
“When I heard it, I have to say in the past I would have been shocked,” Carson told the New York Post. “But I’m not shocked anymore.”
It’s too early to tell if Seau’s death is linked to postconcussion syndrome, but Carson would not be surprised if that’s the case.
“I knew years ago that there would come a point in time where, whether it was transitioning to the game, or there would be guys having these neurological issues, that players were going to be committing suicide,” said Carson, who has spoken out about his own battle with postconcussion syndrome and admitted that he has considered suicide. “Whether it’s Dave Duerson, whether it’s Andre Waters, whether it’s Ray Easterling from 2 weeks ago, there are guys who are committing suicide.
