NFL's Eric Ebron's Military Cleat Tribute to Honor WWII Vet Grandfather

Breaking News

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron found a pretty cool way to honor his grandfather -- custom cleats saluting his incredible military service. 

Ebron's grandfather was U.S. Marine Corps SSGT Oling R. Jackson -- who served in 3 major wars ... WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Jackson passed away in 2003. 

But Ebron wants to make sure his memory lives on -- so he hit up DeJesus Custom Footwear who whipped up a special pair of cleats for Eric to wear this weekend. 

"Love You Grandpops," Ebron posted ... "#RIP #ThisOneForYou."
