From Troy Polamalu’s flowing locks that landed him an endorsement deal with Head & Shoulders to Odell Beckham Jr.’s hair that resembles an ice cream cone, there have been some unique hairstyles in the NFL. Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman’s hair isn’t unique in the way it looks, but he sure has a lot of it.
Or had a lot of it, rather.
Perriman decided to cut off his long dreadlocks that became synonymous with his look. He talked about how much lighter he felt after shaving his head when he spoke with ESPN on Wednesday.
“I feel much lighter,” Perriman said. “Once I cut it, I weighed myself, and I lost three or four pounds. It was crazy.”
He showed off his new look Sunday afternoon and it was pretty crazy how much different, and older, he looked.

Three or four pounds is a huge difference of weight when you think about it just being hair. I am sure he had to drop a helmet size or two after cutting it as well.
Cutting his hair might have been the best thing for him as it has already shown to work for another former Ravens receiver. Torrey Smith cut his hair ahead of the 2013 season and went on to record his best season yet with over 1,100 yards and four touchdowns.
