That's right. In the video below, Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said he has no concerns that cutting away his signature mullet will have a Samson-like effect on his play.

"You don't have to have long hair to cut off your sleeves and be a bad-ass," Allen tells ESPN's Ed Werder while attending the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship.

Allen also offered these words directly to quarterback Brett Favre: "Take training camp off, Brett. We don’t need you. We’re good. Come on back when you’re ready."
