Seau played for the Trojans as a standout linebacker. He was a first round draft pick in 1990. He played professionally for 20 years on the San Diego Charges, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. He went to the Pro Bowl 12 times before retiring from the NFL in 2010.
The NFL has come under fire because of their lack of research into brain damage. Last month the NFL was hit with a law suit.
