Patriots QB Brady debuts new haircut

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady got a haircut, flashing a smug smile as he debuted his new coiffure at a press conference Wednesday.

Though Brady, 34, wore a Patriots cap when he spoke to reporters, the reigning NFL MVP clearly had a close-crop haircut underneath the hat.

The NFL star began growing his luscious locks last fall, seemingly inspired by his wife, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

"I don't take it too seriously," he told Women's Wear Daily this September about his choice of hairstyle, "I just like to change it up."

Brady spoke to the media Wednesday off of his team's 34-31 loss to the Buffalo Bills, in which he threw four interceptions, as many as he had in all of last season.

"There's not much we can do about last week," he told reporters.

The Patriots will take on the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.


"We're gonna prepare like we always do and we're gonna go out there and put our best out there," he assured fans.

Brady has racked up an NFL-record 1,327 passing yards in the first three games of the season.
