PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Steelers linebacker TJ Watt has teamed up with a Pittsburgh-based artist for the design of the cleats he will wear for tonight’s Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants.

Cody Sabol posted on Twitter that Watt liked a series of ‘dipped’ projects that he had been working on.

As a result, the two teamed up create ‘Dipped Bridge’ cleats that Watt will wear when the Steelers face off with the New York Giants in the team’s opening game of the 2020 NFL season.
