PHILADELPHIA -- A handful of Philadelphia Eagles players wore cleats with designs inspired by Carson Wentz's life motto, “Audience of One,” during practice Wednesday.

Linebacker Jordan Hicks and guard Stefen Wisniewski were among those who joined Wentz in wearing the cleats that had “AO1” on one shoe and a Bible verse, Romans 5:8, on the other.

The NFL is running a social campaign called My Cause My Cleats" during Week 13 to help raise awareness for various causes.

Wentz said they plan to sell the cleats for a charity, but haven't settled on which one.

Wentz also has “AO1” tattooed on his right wrist.

"It was kind of a motto I picked up early in my career, and I finally put it on my body just to live the Lord as my audience," Wentz has explained, "whether it was playing football, going to school or whatever I'm doing in my life."

The Romans verse reads: “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
