Cam Heyward fined by NFL for tribute to father on eye black

Cam Heyward eye black

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward is the latest to complain about the uniform policies of the NFL.

Heyward was fined by the league for a tribute to his late father by writing “Iron Head” on his eye black for a recent game.

Cam’s father is the famous Craig “Iron Head” Heyward, a former running back with the Saints and Falcons among others. Iron Head died in 2006 because of cancer. The younger Heyward was fined $5,787 for the gesture.

Heyward’s teammate DeAngelo Williams also had a gripe with the league recently after they would not let him wear pink to honor his late mother, who died of breast cancer.
