Terrell Owens' thoughts on Junior Seau
Terrell Owens comments on Junior Seau's suicide, discusses the backlash from his remarks about Tony Romo and more.
On Junior Seau's suicide:
"Nobody knows what I go through, day in and day out, to be a successful player, to help my team be successful. I want to leave out on a high note, too. We just lost an icon in the football world with Junior Seau. Nobody knew what he was going through. Last night I was up late going through my Twitter and I saw the interview with Marcellus Wiley who was a great, dear friend of Junior. Nobody knew, nobody knows what people go through, man. It's unexplainable.
"My heart goes out to his family, dude. I went through it dude, I saw his mom's interview. Dude, that's gut-wrenching to know a mom has to go through that. Honestly dude, I've been in that situation where you do feel like giving up because nobody understands the world that you live in.
"I think there's a lot of people that have been at that point. Me, other players. People look at us as invincible beings when we're playing such a macho game. A game that we play as kids but we're playing as grown men. And nobody understands that. Who knows what Junior was going through. Who knows."
