Antonio Brown has football cleats honoring Arnold Palmer


Arnold Palmer had -- and has -- millions of fans, and there might not have been one any bigger than Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown. Brown made a habit of spending time with Palmer when he and the Steelers were in Latrobe for their training camp, including making a visit this summer to Palmer's home to hang out and watch sports.

Brown plans on paying tribute to Palmer this Sunday when the Steelers take the field against the Kansas City Chiefs, wearing cleats that have Palmer's likeness on them and the words "The King" on the shoes.

From TMZ Sports:


The wide out likes to wear new custom cleats each week, but maybe he'll stick with these for a little while.
