Detroit Lions nose tackle Danny Shelton may have just signed with the team a few months ago, but he’s already trying to make a positive impact on the local community. Shelton announced on Tuesday that he’s selling a Lions-designed shirt to help families in need and medical workers in the local Detroit area.
“Our 2nd Collaboration will be aimed to help out Families in need and Medical Workers in the Detroit area,” Shelton wrote in an Instagram post. “Show Your Support with a purchase of anyone of these designs. Thank you all for the support and I hope everyone is staying strong and staying safe through these tough times. One Pride!”
And I have to say, the design is pretty fresh. Check it out:
