Baltimore Ravens receiver Breshad Perriman cut some weight this off-season—by getting rid of his hair.
Perriman showed up to Ravens camp with a new hairstyle this summer, sporting a shaved head as opposed to dreadlocks. The haircut paid dividends for Perriman on the scale, where he apparently weighed in a little lighter this year.
“I feel much lighter,” Perriman told ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. “Once I cut it, I weighed myself, and I lost three or four pounds. It was crazy.”
Perriman could certainly afford to be lighter on his knees, where injuries have prevented him from taking the field for a regular season game since he was drafted last year.
Aside from getting cold sometimes, Perriman said he is a fan of his new look. More importantly, he may have unlocked the secret to losing weight.
It just may not work for everyone.
