PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is just one of millions who loves and respects the late Arnold Palmer.

The Latrobe native died last weekend at the age of 87.

Brown posted to Twitter on Thursday, showing off a pair of cleats decorated with pictures of Arnold Palmer, who he calls “the KING.”

Brown posted “Sunday night vibes,” meaning he intends to wear the cleats in Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Sure enough! The wide receiver was spotted stretching in the custom cleats before the game. Pictures taken by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette photographer Peter Diana show Brown wearing them.
