There seems to be a trend developing with former Cardinals defensive backs getting funky haircuts. First it was Giants safety Antrel Rolle getting a glow-in-the-dark hairdo, and now it’s Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie rocking a green stripe down his hair and on his goatee.
DRC says his new hairdo can be attributed to a pact made with teammate Nnamdi Asomugha.
“It goes back to OTAs,” Rodgers-Cromartie told CSN Philly. “Me and Nnamdi were growing our hair. We were like ‘let’s do something crazy.’ So he came in with a hi-top (fade). At first I thought it was a joke, but he was like ‘come on, D, you gotta do something.’ So I went with the green mohawk.”
DRC calls it a mohawk — and the dyed green stripe does create that illusion — but you really need the sides shaved for that to be the case, so his ‘do really doesn’t qualify. It certainly is interesting looking, though it probably won’t last long.
