Taylor Decker has cut his locks.

Yesterday, we brought you the tale of Urban Claus sprinkling Christmas joy across Nationwide Children's Hospital. Today, we bring you the saga of right tackle Taylor Decker's silky mane.

While charitable endeavors are always noble and Decker's action should be applauded, you'll excuse us for a moment if we shed a quick tear for the end of the Decker-Norwell WWE tag team, which surely is but a year away from intercontinental belts.

 

Well played, Taylor; #GoBucks indeed.

That's cool, it's always nice to see these guys doing what they can. Good people and good football players.

Almost like a reverse AJ Hawk deal - iirc he started out with the crewcut before he, Carpenter and Schlegel went caveman their senior year.
Cool gesture, TD.

AJ, Carpenter, and Schlegal grew their hair out long to honor Pat Tillman.  I like that part of the story.

I didn't know that.

Yep, was pretty cool of them.  Here's an article that has a short tid-bit about it.

Carpenter actually auctioned off the opportunity to cut his mane off, during the Buckeye Cruise this year:

I had a long mane like that in High School and when I cut it, did the same thing, it's very rewarding to do nice things for people. Extra helmet sticker for Taylor Decker.
