NFL players will be allowed to wear customized cleats 

After the first My Cleats, My Cause campaign was successful last season, the NFL has decided to do it again.

This season, the NFL will once again allow players to wear customized cleats that represent their favorite charitable organizations in Week 13 of the regular season, Monday Morning Quarterback reported on Wednesday.

Last season, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan wore cleats with the mascots of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Hope and Will, on the heel.

I’m committed to making all kids better today and healthier tomorrow. #MyCauseMyCleats @childrensatl
