NFL Changes Course; Odell Beckham Jr. & Victor Cruz Won’t Be Fined For 9/11 Cleats

New York Giants v New York Jets

Sunday marked the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy, and New York Giants wide receivers Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham wanted to pay homage to the first respondents and victims of 9/11 by wearing two separate pairs of cleats on Sunday against their divisional rivals, the Dallas Cowboys. They were also aware that they would be fined by the league for violating the league’s uniform policy.


In a shocking turn of events, the league office decided not to fine Cruz & Beckham for their cleats, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Tennessee Titans linebacker Avery Williamson won’t be fined either.

“I haven’t heard from (the league),” Beckham told ESPN’s Jordan Raanan on Wednesday afternoon. “They’ll probably fine me. They fine me for everything. They fine me for smiling.”

“It’s for a good cause,” said Cruz.
