Cam Newton breaks out the Superman cleats

If/when Cam Newton scores a touchdown tonight, he won’t have to pretend to open his shirt to reveal the “S” beneath it.  Instead, he’ll just have to point to his shoes.

The NFL Network pregame show included images of Newton wearing specially-made Under Armour cleats bearing the Superman colors and logo.

If Newton wears the shoes in the game, he undoubtedly will be fined.  Last month, Newton was fined $10,000 for wearing visor clips that showed the Under Armour logo.

Two weeks ago, the NFL allowed Bears receiver Brandon Marshall to wear green shoes in honor of Mental Health Awareness week.  He was fined $10,500.

UPDATE 8:36 p.m. ET:  It appears that Newton ditched the Superman cleats before the game started.
