Philadelphia Eagles WR A.J. Brown wore a pair of bright green cleats Sunday in the 22-16 win over the New York Giants.
He revealed Monday that he did it for his daughter. Brown tweeted:
I wore those cleats last night so baby girl can see “DaDa running”
The Eagles secured the No. 1 seed in the NFC with Sunday’s win. Brown had four catches for 95 yards and finished with 1,496 for the team’s season record. Mike Quick held the yards receiving mark of 1,409 in 1983 in the 16-game season.
“It means a lot to leave my footprint on this organization,” Brown said. “There were a lot of great receivers before me. For me to do it the first year, it means the world. I told Mike thank you for everything he has done for the game.”
Quick is Eagles radio analyst. “Just as he told me before the game, he said the first pass is going to come to me and I’m going to break your record,” he said.
