Seau becomes 8th member of ’94 Chargers to pass away
Following the shocking news of the apparent suicide of future Hall of Fame NFL linebacker Junior Seau, another shocker came to a realization.
Seau is the eighth member of the 1994 AFC Champion San Diego Charges to have passed away. None of the eight members lived to be 45.
Deadspin’s Barry Petchesky wrote an article on the team in December of 2011, detailing the situations behind each of the team members’ deaths.
Eight members of the 94 Chargers have died. That's a serious problem for the NFL.

Out of all those '94 Chargers deaths, the most creepy is the one guy killed by two bolts of lightning. For real.

'94 Chargers cause-of-deaths haunting: car accident, ValuJet crash, lightning (!), drugs, 3 heart problems and now Junior.

Vince McMahon thinks the NFL has a problem RT @RandBall: If TMZ report is true, Junior Seau would be the 8th member of '94 Chargers to die.
