The All-Pro defensive end for the Minnesota Vikings showed off his new trim in a video and photo posted this week on the team's website. Allen also wrote an update Tuesday on his Twitter feed, confirming that he got the cut for his upcoming wedding.
Allen said the mullet is not "just some hair'' but "a lifestyle!''
He added: "You gotta keep a positive Mullitude.''
Allen is one of the more colorful characters in Minnesota's locker room and on the field. He celebrates a sack by dropping to one knee and twirling his arm, pretending he's roping a calf.
