“I’ll cut my hair however you want to cut it,” Hocker told his 89 teammates Wednesday night, via ESPN.com.
The place kicker now wishes he would have just joined his fellow rookies in making a funny skit.
“I kind of regret it now,” said Hocker, who signed autographs with a hat covering much of his head Thursday. “In the moment it was fun, but now I wish I had thought of something funny for the team … I didn’t anticipate this. I got up on the stage and they put up three pictures for the team to vote on. This was my look. They let me have it and there I went.”
Hocker will have to keep his new dew for at least a week, per orders from the veterans. Hocker hopes to shave the rest off before the Redskins Aug. 7 preseason opener against New England.
“Right now they’re saying no,” he said, “so it’s not going as I planned but hopefully I can get that thing off real soon.”
