Ross Jones, One of the greatest NFL offseason traditions – almost as good as the rookies get dumped in the ice bath – is when the vets give rookies “haircuts.” Well, even high-profile cornerback Tyrann Mathieu was no exception. Have a peek at the damage defensive tackle Darnell Dockett caused on his head. Yep, that’s the No. 90, Dockett’s jersey number, carved in the side of the Honey Badger’s head. Dockett gave some other rookies some scary looking haircuts, but we here at Laces Out don’t promote offensive language, something in which those videos consist of. But we do still strongly suggest you check it out. Mathieu wasn’t let off easy, either. Only some cyclists and swimmers can appreciate his new aerodynamic look as he had his eyebrows whacked. Ouch!
