The Pittsburgh Steelers are a tight group. You can tell this without even stepping foot into their locker room. Watch their interactions on social media, how they are always there for one another on the field, and this team’s ability to always step up when the going gets tough.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that this Steelers team is rallying around their injured teammate Ryan Shazier. They all honor them in their own way. Vince Williams wore his No. 50 practice jersey all week, some have lobbied the organization to have a special Ryan Shazier “Renegade” Sunday night, but Antonio Brown is going for something a bit flashier.

Check out the pair of cleats Brown posted on his SnapChat account, honoring Shazier and the linebacker’s motto “Shalieve”:

A fitting tribute to a player whose future is certainly in-the-air after having spinal surgery earlier this week.

While the players all honor No. 50 this week in their own way, there is no doubt the best way they can make Shazier proud is to go out on Sunday Night Football and beat the Baltimore Ravens, clinching a playoff spot and winning their second straight AFC North title.
