Steelers’ Cam Heyward Fined By The NFL For Honoring His Father Who Died Of Brain Cancer

Yesterday, we reported about the NFL was not allowing Steelers’ running back DeAngelo Williams to wear pink all year to honor his mother who died of breast cancer. Today, Williams’ teammate Cam Heyward revealed that the NFL had fined him for wearing eye black that honored his late father, long time NFL’er Craig “Ironhead” Heyward who died of brain cancer when Cam was 17 years old.


Hopefully someone at the NFL who has an ounce of common sense rescinds this fine because it’s just completely tone deaf and dumb.
