The San Diego Chargers honored the memory of Junior Seau today before their home opener against the Tennessee Titans and officially retired the NFL superstar's jersey -- No. 55.

Seau's parents and children were down on the field during the emotional tribute -- which was officiated by legendary Chargers QB Dan Fouts.

Fouts said, "There is only one Junior Seau and only one 55 ... and they belong together forever.”

Seau played 13 seasons with the Chargers and was selected for 12 Pro-bowl appearances.

Seau was found dead in his home on May 2 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 43.
