Steelers running back James Conner is among those mourning the Point Breeze native, and he found a unique way to do it.

Conner, an Erie native who played at the University of Pittsburgh, tweeted several photos of a custom-made pair of cleats honoring Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick and who died last week of a suspected overdose at age 26.
