Rookie life in the NFL can be fun (anybody feel like making millions of dollars?), but there are stresses that more well-seasoned guys just don’t have to deal with.
For one ting, the rooks are generally made to carry the older players’ pads and helmets to and from the practice field, but there’s another hazing that bleeds into these young gunners’ personal lives.
The dreaded haircut.
Granted, Tyrann Mathieu’s haircut pre-hazing (above) wasn’t exactly done by da Vinci, but it was his, and it was mostly one solid “thing.”
What Darnell Dockett did to him is something straight out of Edward Scissorhands.
You’ll kindly notice in the photo below that, no, Mathieu did not suddenly develop a case of alopecia – Dockett shaved that left eyebrow right off.
Generally speaking, you probably don’t want a guy who brings pet tigers with him to practice giving you a haircut.
Isn’t that right, Mr. Scissorhands?
