Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has started a pretty cool tradition of honoring fallen superstars on his cleats.
This season so far, Brown has honored boxing legend Muhammad Ali and golf legend Arnold Palmer.
This week, Brown will honor two fallen Miami athletes as the Steelers head to South Florida to take on the Dolphins. Brown shared a photo of his cleats where he will be paying his respects to two huge Miami sports stars: Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez who died tragically in a boating accident, and MMA fighter Kimbo Slice.

Unfortunately, the N(o)F(un)L(eague) has had its protests against Brown’s cleats, forcing him to change out of them. So, there’s no telling how long Brown will be able to keep his cleats on as he hits the turf in Hard Rock Stadium.
