Troy Polamanu: A Bit Too Hairy?

Kyle BunchSenior Analyst IMarch 26, 2008

If Troy Polamalu is like Samson, then Kansas City is his Delilah. Yes, Polamalu might need to hide those curly locks, or next thing he knows he might be tackled by a barber. That's because the NFL owners are deciding on a ban that would allow hair to be no longer than the name on the back of the jersey.

Why? Likely for safety. And Polamalu knows the risks more than anybody. A couple of years ago Kansas City's Larry Johnson grabbed him by the hair and threw him to the turf following a Polamalu interception. Now the stipulation doesn't enforce cutting of the hair. Only that the excess hair is tucked into the helmet. But I really doubt if there is enough space left in Polamalu's helmet to fit all that hair.
