Instead of reveling in those euphoric days, though, Hall is left to absorb and explain the grim and the inexplicable.

San Diego Chargers chaplain Shawn Mitchell said Junior Seau’s family is revisiting its decision to donate the former NFL linebacker’s brain for research into football-related injuries.

“The Seau family is currently revisiting several important family decisions and placing them on hold in order to confer with their elders,” according to a statement from Pastor Shawn Mitchell, longtime San Diego Charger chaplain and now pastor of the New Venture Christian Fellowship in Oceanside.

Several hundred people took part in a paddle-out in front of Junior Seau’s Oceanside (San Diego County) home to pay tribute to the former NFL linebacker.

That’s how many concussions Gary Plummer, Seau’s friend and former teammate with the San Diego Chargers, estimates Seau must have suffered during his 20 years in the NFL.
