NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — So many family, friends and former teammates mourned Rob Bironas on Thursday that more than 30 people sat in an overflow area outside the funeral home with the service streamed on a video board.

Former teammate Casey Cramer says people grieved without answers about how the life of the ex-NFL kicker ended.

Bironas, 36, died Saturday in single-vehicle crash. There are 911 calls describing him as the man trying to chase and run people off the road before his accident.

Bironas' wife Rachel was comforted at the funeral by her father, Terry Bradshaw. Fox broadcaster and former NASCAR driver Darrell Waltrip attended to support his friend Bradshaw. Singer Michael W. Smith was among the more than 400 people attending the service.
