Cleats worn by Tennessee Titans linebacker Avery Williamson honoring victims of 9/11 sold for a lot of money at a charity auction.
The specialized shoes sold for a staggering $6,600 at a charity auction for Operation Warrior Wishes, according to TMZ Sports.
Williamson and two other NFL players had previously been threatened with a fine for supporting the first responders on 9/11 and the victims. Some reports had circulated suggesting the NFL would indeed fine three players, but it was never made official. (RELATED: NFL Commish Says He Supports Kaepernick, Might Punish Players Who Honor 9/11)
If they haven’t been fined at this point for honoring 9/11 then it’s likely the NFL front offices decided to turn a blind-eye.
