The NFL is notoriously strict with its uniform policy, regularly fining players thousands of dollars for wearing their socks too low or trying to alter their league-sanctioned gear. But Chicago Bears Wide Reciever Brandon Marshall, 29, wore green cleats in support of Mental Health Awareness Week despite knowing that his actions would lead to a big fine from the league. Marshall has waged his own public battle with mental illness and promised to match any fine the league throws his way and make a donation to a mental health foundation.

And he had a monster, 2-touchdown game in his team’s win over the New York Giants.
