Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson is the latest professional athlete to publicly show support for Eric Garner, the man who died this summer after being put in a chokehold by New York officer Daniel Pantaleo. (The officer was not indicted.)

NBA players such as LeBron James and Kobe Bryant have already shown support for Garner by wearing "I Can't Breathe" shirts during warmups before games. 

Jackson has found a similar way to show support, by having Garner's final words put on a pair of cleats.
