Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins fined $6K For Wearing Yeezy cleats
While the NFL reversed course and decided not to fine New York Giants wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. & Victor Cruz for their 9/11 cleats, at least one player didn’t get the benefit of the doubt for wearing special made cleats.

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins stated Thursday that he received a fine from the league (for $6,076) for violating the leagues uniform policy. The league rules state that shoes must have one dominant base color and the Yeezy’s did not.
Asked if he would wear the shoes again Hopkins said with a laugh: ”Only if Kanye wants to pay the fine.”
Also on Thursday, the Yeezy’s went on sale and were already sold out by midday.
