NFL's Antonio Brown's New Cleat Tribute to PAT TILLMAN!

Antonio Brown New Cleat Tribute ... PAT TILLMAN!

11/11/2016 4:55 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE


Antonio Brown
will honor Veteran's Day with a special pair of cleats ... featuring an image of NFL star-turned-Army Ranger Pat Tillman

Pat's story is legendary ... he quit the NFL after 9/11 because he felt it was his patriotic duty to join the military -- and joined the elite Army Rangers Special Ops unit. 

Tillman was killed in Afghanistan in 2004. He was posthumously given the Silver Star and Purple Heart medals. 

Brown went to Corey Pane -- the guy who does all of AB's cleats -- and requested the Tillman tribute ... and Pane delivered in a huge way.

Unclear if Brown will wear the cleats during the game or just during warmups ... but either way, it's a pretty cool thing. 

#RIPPatTillman
