The NFL allows players to get creative and have fun once a year with custom cleats for #MyCauseMyCleats that shine a light on causes that are important to them.

The Indianapolis Colts have multiple players who will use this opportunity during #MyCauseMyCleats week to honor their late teammate, Edwin Jackson, who was slain by a drunk driver during a hit-and-run accident last year.

The Colts released a really touching video in which players open up about why they’re choosing the Edwin Jackson 53 Foundation for #MyCauseMyCleats.

Jackson was a walk-on athlete at Georgia Southern University before starting his NFL career as an undrafted free agent in 2015. His foundation “helps extraordinary walk-on athletes give their all to their sport and give back to their community.”
