The NFL reportedly threatened to eject Marshawn Lynch from the NFC Championship game if he wore the customized gold cleats he sported during warm ups, according to Fox Sports. 

The shoes, pictured below, were unveiled earlier this week. It's unclear whether Lynch will comply with the league's request.
