PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner gave his own tribute to fallen Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller on Saturday.
Conner tweeted pictures of custom cleats that have Miller’s face and “Thank You Mac,” printed on the sides and a number of song titles in blue on the top.
Thank you Mac. 🙏🏽💧 pic.twitter.com/gz9gkA7hBm

Miller, a Point Breeze native, was found dead in his California home from a suspected overdose on Sept. 7. He was 26 years old.
After 192 yards on 36 touches in Week 1 of the NFL season in place of Le’Veon Bell, who’s sitting out with an unsigned franchise tag, Conner is currently the Steelers starting running back.
