New York Jets guard Willie Colon added a special touch to his game cleats for Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Colon honored the late Yogi Berra with a message on his cleats, saying "R.I.P. To the Great Yogi Berra, You will be missed" on Twitter.

Berra passed away at the age of 80 years old earlier this week and was remembered by everyone in the sports world. Berra played for the New York Yankees from 1946 to 1963 as he created his legacy in New York. Colon is a Bronx native and decided to honor his hometown hero with this special message.
