Bears linebacker Lance Briggs is willing to pay a fine so he can show his patriotism on Sunday, the 10-year anniversary of Sept. 11.
Briggs said he's going to wear red, white and blue cleats and gloves from Reebok, even though the NFL's uniform policy prohibits players from deviating from pre-selected colors.
"By far the best fine I will ever have to pay," Briggs wrote on his Twitter account a little after 7:30 p.m.
But a league spokesman said that won't be necessary.
"He will not be fined," the spokesman said.
