Friday September 30th, 2016

Antonio Brown will honor late golf legend Arnold Palmer with a pair of custom cleats on Sunday, according to photos obtained by TMZ.

The star Steelers wideout will take the field on Sunday night against the Chiefs donning some colorful Nike cleats with Palmer’s image and the message “The King.”

Palmer was born in Pennsylvania, and met Brown recently.

“A guy like Arnold, his legacy and what he meant not only to the world, but to Latrobe, to Pennsylvania, his legacy will live on,” Brown said to ESPN. “An inspiring guy. I’m glad I got a moment to share with him.”

Brown drew the scrutiny of the NFL on Sunday after wearing blue cleats with images of his children on them. He was asked to change shoes at halftime.

Palmer died on Sunday at the age of 87.
