The NFL continues to harass Antonio Brown for pretty much anything they can.
The Pittsburgh Steelers star wide receiver chose to pay tribute to a deceased sporting legend for the second straight week, but the NFL threatened to remove him from Sunday's game against the New York Jets as a result.
Brown, who received special permission from the league to wear cleats with Arnold Palmer emblazoned on them last week, wore black and yellow cleats with the effigy of Muhammed Ali to start Sunday's game. However, was forced to remove the Ali cleats, or be removed from the game.
Evan Washburn of CBS Sports reported that Brown was told before the game that he had to change his cleats or he would not be allowed to play in the game. Brown then complied and switched them out for league approved footwear.
The reason for the NFL's decision is unknown, but the rules continue t be an issue for the Steelers and Brown himself.
