NASHVILLE (AP) - A custom footwear designer says he has given a pair of Nike cleats a patriotic look for Titans linebacker Avery Williamson to wear during Tennessee's opener on Sept. 11.

True Blue Customs has posted a picture of the star-spangled cleats on Instagram. The shoe is mostly painted blue with white stars. The Nike "swoosh" logo is painted in red and white stripes. On the back of the cleats is the date 9-11-01 with the message "Never Forget." An outline of the twin towers stands in for the 11.

Williamson may need permission from the NFL to wear the cleats. ESPN reports former Panthers cornerback Josh Norman was fined $5,000 by the league last year for wearing patriotic cleats.

Titans spokesman Robbie Bohren says Williamson hasn't decided yet whether he'll wear the cleats.
