Pat Tillman is back with well-deserved Legend status in Madden Ultimate Team.

Former Arizona Cardinals safety Pat Tillman is often remembered as much for his sacrifices for his country as his budding football career, but Madden 13 is looking to make sure his life is commemorated too with two newly introduced Pat Tillman cards in Madden Ultimate Team.

Currently, there are a few versions of Tillman available in Madden 13’s online card collecting game, and all could find a room on any squad. The first is an 85 overall version of Tillman that can be found in the Card Deals section for roughly 40 coins, while a more prestigious 99 overall version is hidden away in Legend packs. Fittingly enough, Tillman’s card is also available in three colors: Red, white and blue.

Although Madden Ultimate Team has brought back many players from the past in their Legend card packs, this marks the first time that we know of where a player was added in tribute. Tillman turned down a $3.6 million dollar contract offer from the Cardinals to serve for the U.S. Army, and died while serving in 2004 from reported friendly fire. He was 27 years old.

Below is a pretty good video that talks a bit about Tillman himself, as well as where, how and what it’s like to have him in Madden Ultimate Team.
