The Miami Dolphins will honor the memory of Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti during the 2019 season with a helmet decal.

The team announced Wednesday that the decal, featuring the initials "NAB," will debut in the Dolphins' Sept. 8 season opener against the visiting Baltimore Ravens.

Buoniconti, who struggled with dementia, died on July 30. He was 78.

Buoniconti was a key member of the Dolphins' perfect season in 1972 and helped the club to another Super Bowl win the following year. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2001.
