Ravens Draft Pick’s Family Takes Same Route As Justin Layne’s, Ditches Steelers Gear For Purple And Black

Pittsburgh Steelers third-round pick Justin Layne and his family made headlines last month when they were drafted by the rival of the team that many of them were born into supporting, that being the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland had shown a lot of interest in him, but then ended up trading up in the second round to draft another cornerback instead of him.

He immediately took off his Browns socks as soon as the Steelers drafted him and threw them in the garbage. Over the proceeding weekend, his father repainted his very Browns-themed bathroom into Steelers black and gold, complete with the team logo.
