DeSean Jackson has customized 'I can't breathe' cleats made for Giants game (PHOTO)

Many athletes are throwing their support behind the protests recognizing the death of Eric Garner by wearing 'I can't breathe' t-shirts in pre-game warmups.

Garner, who died while in a New York City police officer's chokehold, is heard on an eyewitness video saying 'I can't breathe' several times right before he took his last breath. A grand jury chose not to indict the police officer in Garner's death.

Now it appears that Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson will be showing his support during a game when Washington plays the Giants in New Jersey on Sunday.

Jackson had his friend Marcus Rivero design a customized pair of "I can't breathe cleats" for the game at MetLife Stadium.

Rivero created the cleats this week and posted a picture of them to Instagram with the caption: "This pair was done as a symbolism for the recent events. [Jackson] requested these, I just made his idea a Reality. Thanks again Desean."

Rivero told TMZ in October that customizing a pair of cleats can cost a player up to $1,000.

Just wondering how much an NFL fine for wearing the shoes might cost.
