For 255 consecutive games, Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher has laced up his cleats and taken the field. It’s the third longest streak in NFL history (non-kicker).

It’s a streak that will be coming to an end today with game 256 as the veteran linebacker is set to retire after the game.

Fletcher has left the door open just a bit, suggesting that he could potentially come back in the near future to a team with playoff aspirations in need of linebacker help, but it’s a scenario that seems unlikely. Thus, Sunday afternoon will likely be the final time Fletcher touches an NFL field as a player and to commemorate the event, the former John Carroll product will be wearing some custom Ironman cleats:


The kicks feature an airbrushed Washington Redskins logo and a skyline of the city on the outside of the shoe while on the inside Fletcher’s number (#59) along with the wordage ‘Ironman 256′ reside.

We’ve seen some pretty gnarly custom cleats this season, but these might be the best we’ve come across.
