The Tennessee Titans will wear a No. 9 decal on the backs of their helmets this year to honor the late Steve McNair, according to an NFL source. The decal will appear for the first time during this Sunday's Hall of Fame preseason game when the Titans play the Bills in Canton, Ohio.
The team had already planned to wear an AFL 50th anniversary patch on their jerseys to commemorate the Houston Oilers so a second jersey patch to honor McNair would have violated league rules. Sunday the Titans will wear the old Oilers throwback jerseys and helmets.
