New York Jets receiver Brandon Marshall wore cleats to honor Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams and his late mother during Sunday’s game between the two teams.
Prior to the game, Marshall stated that he would give Williams his cleats to be auctioned for funding in the fight against breast cancer.

This is a classy gesture on Marshall’s part.
Understandably, Williams was honored by the gesture.
Really touched by this gesture. Proof that some things are BIGGER than football and that we're all in this fight against Cancer together! pic.twitter.com/StlFv5Njia

Williams should be commended for his tireless fight against breast cancer.
Players like Marshall also deserve praise for doing what they can to help. Now we hope that these cleats raise a lot of money for this fight.
