DeAngelo Williams's Daughters Take Stand Against NFL

The league can't stop these two little ladies.

Just because the NFL has banned Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams from wearing pink to raise awareness for breast cancer doesn't mean the league could stop his daughters.

After being fined upwards of $5,700 by the NFL for wearing "Find the Cure" eyeblack in Week 7 action against the Kansas City Chiefs, Williams's young daughters are taking over raising awareness for breast cancer, which claimed the lives of the rusher's mom and four aunts.

On Sunday, ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter tweeted this image of Williams's daughters wearing pink and holding a sign that read, "We wear PINK because our DADDY is not allowed. The NFL Cannot Fine Us."

It came after Williams expressed disappointment over the NFL's rule, which prohibits players from wearing pink past October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
"It's not just about October for me; it's not just a month, it's a lifestyle," Williams told ESPN. "It's about getting women to recognize to get tested."

Even though the league banned Williams from spreading awareness past October, his daughters can't be stopped from wearing pink until the end of the season.
