Alshon Jeffery to wear personalized Air Jordan cleats this season

Nike will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan XIII with their roster of NFL stars wearing personalized cleats this season that will work with players' respective team colors.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will be one of the players rocking some Jordans this season.

Jefferey won't be the only player on the field this weekend sporting J's when the Eagles take on the Washington Redskins as their star tight end, Jordan Reed, will also be rocking the Jordan Brand cleats.

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will have some as well. Others around the league include Golden Tate, Malik Hooker, Melvin Ingram, Thomas Davis, Michael Crabtree, Jamal Adams, Corey Coleman, Joe Haden, DeShone Kizer, Jalen Ramsey, and Earl Thomas. 

You can get a glimpse at a white version of the shoes from a preseason game below as well.

This is... this is just embarrassing.

Maybe we'd be better off with Joe Lunchpail from the 700 level running Washington.

And Tony Williams should know better as he represents parts of South and West Philadelphia in his senate district.

We can probably give the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, a pass? Maybe? 

I don't know. This is just bad form.

This video from KYW's Mike DeNardo comes from an opening of a grocery store in the Grays Ferry section of Philadelphia. The politicos were trying to show some team spirit with the Eagles hosting the Vikings this week in the NFC Championship game. Hopefully, that game goes much better than this horrific chant attempt.

Be prepared.

That’s the Boy Scout's motto, but it’s also the motto for the Philadelphia Police Department heading into this weekend’s NFC Championship Game at the Linc between the Eagles and Vikings.

Win or lose, there’s going to be a big reaction from fans once the game goes final and one of the locations the police expect a lot of activity is in the area of Frankford and Cottman Avenues.

Here’s the notice that was sent two days ago that was posted on the Mayfair Civic Association Facebook Page.

Hopefully the fans will be out in full force to celebrate after the game this Sunday, but either way, we hope no people, property, or horses are harmed. However, it’s good to take these steps to be ready.
