OCEANSIDE, Calif. (AP)

Several hundred people have taken part in a paddle-out in front of Junior Seau's Southern California home to pay tribute to the former NFL linebacker.

The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/LpeO5y ) that participants at Sunday's seaside memorial included Seau's former teammate Drew Brees, who played quarterback for the San Diego Chargers when Seau was the star linebacker.

The 43-year-old Seau committed suicide Wednesday at his home in Oceanside.

Seau was an avid surfer who was often seen riding the waves in front of his home. Fans and well-wishers formed a circle across the water and held hands while a prayer was said for him.

They also chanted Seau's name and the number 55, his number at Southern California and during 20 years in the NFL.
