Report: NFL denies DeAngelo Williams' request to wear pink all season for late mother

BY foxsports • October 13, 2015

For DeAngelo Williams, every month is breast cancer awareness month. 

After losing his mother to the disease in 2014, Williams has dyed his hair pink and he also paints his toenails pink. While NFL players around the league where pink as part of their uniform to spread awareness in October, Williams was hoping he would be able to sport pink throughout the season. 

His request to the league was denied according to a report from ESPN's Lisa Salters during Monday Night Football. This is not a surprise considering that the NFL has been known to fine players for not having their socks the appropriate length. 

Regardless of the policy, cue the Twitter outrage.
