By Julian Gavaghan

Former football star Ray Easterling has become the latest sportsman to kill himself after suffering from depression believed to have been linked to head injuries during his career.

The 62-year-old, who police say shot himself at his home in Richmond, Virginia, played for the Atlanta Falcons during the 1970s and later sued the NFL over its handling of concussions.

He began showing signs of brain damage 20 years ago with bouts of depression and insomnia.

I hate hearing about these guys who thought the "Boss'" would have their back and find out once you're out: YOU ARE OUT!!!!
My heart goes out to his family.
