NFL 9/11 Tribute Uniforms: More Player and Team Updates
As more NFL tribute pics come in, we'll drop them in here and tell you what the teams are doing in commemoration of the fallen heroes and victims of the 9/11 tragedies.
All-World Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is going the route of Matt Hasselbeck and also wearing custom-made shoes.
According to Reggie Wayne he is doing it for a simple reason.
"To just honor that day," said the Colts receiver about wearing the special Reebok cleats in honor of September 11th, the day of the Colts opener against the Texans. "To honor everybody who lost loved ones or lost their lives, families and their lost loved ones and friends."
Wayne's Colts teammate, safety Antoine Bethea, will also be getting into the tribute style of the first game.
"Me and Reg said 'Hey, why not?'" said Bethea of the cleats. "It's just something special."
Mr. Bethea is obviously a man of few words but great fashion sense.
Jamaal Charles has the whole gloves and shoes package ready to go.
Charles tweeted "I Never Forget" and then posted a twit pic showing all the gear he was prepping to wear.
[The pic] showed an all-red bottom surface around the cleats beneath a white shoe with large blue stripes wrapped around it and white stars along the heel. The back of the glove is all red, with the words, “Never forget,” circled around the date, 11 September 2001. The palm of the glove is blue, with white stars.
Several other players also got into the mix and later I will have an update on what the league is doing as well.
