Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones gained attention over the weekend when he drew the "Peace for Paris" symbol that has come to represent solidity with Paris following the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks on the city on his cleats.  He is now apparently wanting to take his support further by auctioning the cleats off to raise money for the victims of the attacks.

Jones posted a (since deleted) message on his Twitter feed Monday saying he wished he could "action off or donate my cleats to benefit the people in Paris."

Pesky NCAA regulations bar the auctioning off of college athlete's apparel. The organization gave a waiver LSU running back Leonard Fournette allowing him to auction off the jersey he wore during the Oct. 10 LSU-South Carolina game. That jersey eventually sold for $101,000 dollars, setting a record for a game worn college football jersey sold on the Internet.
