When Titans linebacker Avery Williamson showed off custom cleats, cleats designed specifically to honor the victims of 9/11 on the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attack that rocked America, he learned that wearing those could get him fined by the NFL.
Williamson proved Sunday that he didn’t care about being fined.
The player previously said that he didn’t “want to draw negative attention” so he was just “going to focus on playing the game” and not wear the cleats, but that’s not what happened Sunday.
Williamson ran out of the tunnel wearing these cleats.
Williamson has announced that he plans on auctioning the cleats and donating the proceeds to Warrior Wishes, a charity that honors the military and Gold Star families.
Police unions have offered to pay for the fines Williamson would get.
