NEW YORK -- Pat Tillman, the former Arizona safety killed in Afghanistan, will be honored by the NFL and the Cardinals during the upcoming season.
 

Players on all 32 teams will wear a decal bearing Tillman's number 40 in games of the second week. Cardinals players will wear it all season.

Tillman also will be honored at halftime during the Cardinals' home opener Sept. 19 against New England. The team, the league and the players union also are working to generate funds for the Pat Tillman Foundation through the sale of Tillman's jersey at NFL shops and military bases.

Tillman left the NFL in 2002 to join the U.S. Army Rangers with his brother Kevin. He was killed April 22 in the Khost province of Afghanistan, the first NFL player to die in combat since the Vietnam War.
