Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs honored Betty White on Sunday. He had custom-made cleats to wear against the New York Jets.

White — who had lived to 99-years-old — passed away on December 31st. The cleats had a White’s face on one side of the cleats.

The other side said “Thank you for being a friend.” That was a quote from her stint on “Golden Girls.”

NFL players are only allowed to wear customized cleats during warm-ups and pre-game ceremonies. Once the game starts, the players are not allowed to wear these custom-made cleats.

Once a year, the league allows the players to wear custom-made cleats. That’s when the league has their ‘My Cleats, My Cause’ week.

This has taken place the past few years during Week 13. It is believed that White passed away of natural causes in her Brentwood, California home, according to US Weekly.

She passed away less than three weeks from her 100th birthday. This was the second straight week that Diggs had custom-made cleats made.

Before their January 2nd game, he wore John Madden custom-made cleats before their game against the Atlanta Falcons.
