Eagles Buzz: NFL forced AJ Brown to change neon cleats mid-game vs. Bucs

Eagles WR AJ Brown enjoyed a bounce-back performance in Monday night’s victory over Tampa Bay, catching nine passes for 131 yards.

Brown was sporting flashy neon cleats in the first quarter, coordinated nicely with his mouthpiece. Later in the game, however, Brown switched to black cleats.

Many believed the change was due to the weather conditions, but it was revealed to be the NFL’s doing.

Officials warned Brown that he couldn’t return to the field with his highlighter yellow cleats as they didn’t conform with the NFL’s uniform policy. Players are only permitted to wear white, black, or team-colored cleats.

The league allows customized cleats only once per season during its My Cause My Cleats weekend.
