Brandon Marshall’s green cleats have finally cost him.
After a week of creating headlines to promote Mental Health Awareness week, Marshall was fined $10,500 by the NFL for violating the league’s uniform and equipment rules. He tweeted a picture of the letter he received along with a message:
Football is my platform not my purpose. This fine is nothing compared to the conversation started & awareness raised. pic.twitter.com/P9GNygFpH9
Marshall, who was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, decided to wear the cleats to promote Mental Health Awareness week. He also said last week that he would match the fine with an equal contribution to charity.
