Philadelphia Eagles WR A.J. Brown was wearing electric yellow cleats in the first half of the Monday Night game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
A X/Twitter user posted a video of Brown catching a pass in the Monday Night game with the question, “Did the NFL make AJ Brown change his cleats?”
Brown responded to it. “Yes they did. No Fun League strikes again!”
The NFL changed its rules in 2017 to allow players to wear customized cleats in any color they want, the rule only extends to pregame warmups. For the game, playerst must wear a standard color pair of cleats for the game.
“Teams designate a color for each game, typically black or white, and all players must match that color,” the NFL rulebook states.
Players can different cleats during the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats initiative. During those games, players are permitted to wear customized cleats to highlight a cause important to them.
Brown had his best game of the season in the Eagles 25-11 victory over the Buccaneers. He had 9 catches for 131 yards. This came a week after a animated discussion between Brown and QB Jalen Hurts.
The Eagles are 3-0 on the season. They host the Washington Commanders on Sunday at 1PM.
