A medical examiner near Atlanta says former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver has committed suicide. Cobb County investigators say the 29-year-old Oliver was found dead Tuesday night at his home in Marietta, about 20 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta. Police say Oliver died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. In a statement, Chargers officials said Oliver was a 2007 fourth-round supplemental draft pick from the University of Georgia. Oliver was academically ineligible his senior year and was unable to return to UGA's squad. "Everyone in the Chargers family is sad today after hearing the news about Paul," the team said. "He was part of our family for five years. At just 29 years old, he still had a lifetime in front of him. Right now all of our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this most difficult time." Oliver played for the Chargers from 2007 to 2011. Club officials say Oliver's best season was 2010, when he started eight times and recorded 62 tackles. Oliver was released by the New Orleans Saints after training camp in 2011, and returned to San Diego that season.
