Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been forbidden from wearing gold cleats in the NFC Championship.
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has never failed to be unique, and this doesn’t just come in the form of stonewalling the media.
Lynch had initially planned on wearing gold cleats in the NFC Championship that are worth $1,100.
However, the NFL has banned the running back from wearing these shoes in the game.
The league threatened to eject him from the game if he does not comply, but they later said that he simply just has to remove the shoes and they will let him play.
Pro Football Talk reported on Lynch’s shoe situation on Twitter.
