EVERY player get's old. You USED to be able, now you're not.
It's depressing. What's to look forwards to?
Some look forwards to old age. Other's dread old age.
Has more to do with the head injuries these guys sustain than the whole 'missing the game' thing, though I'm sure that doesn't help. Dave Duerson was another one who killed himself last year, and they found severe brain damage afterwards. Reports are that Seau shot himself in the chest, so that his brain could be studied afterwards.
The guy also went through a divorce.
