Eagles tight end Zach Ertz blew the Twitterverse wide open when he reported to training camp last month, both because he wasn't expected to be in camp after a summer of trade rumblings... and because he rolled up rocking a new bleached-blonde hairdo.
Was it a message? A midlife crisis? Did we need to talk to Julie Ertz? Eagles fans had all the theories.
Ultimately it was probably just a fashion choice, but it was a fun talking point for a little while.
And apparently Ertz's new style inspired at least one of his teammates to join the Blonde Brigade.
Brandon Brooks updated his Instagram story on Thursday night with a quick snippet of none other than Eagles center Jason Kelce sporting a new blonde hairdo:
WOW. The guy looks like Santa Claus - if Santa Claus was a perennial All-Pro candidate on the O-line.
If you'd given me five guesses as to the next Eagle to choose a blonde hairdo, I don't think I would've guessed Kelce. The guy is pretty understated in his gameday apparel choices, but I guess when you think about the 'fit he got off at the Super Bowl parade in February 2018 he is prone to outbursts of extreme style choices.
I think if the Eagles start off the season with a win Sunday against Atlanta, another guy should pick up the blonde trend. Make it a team thing. Maybe... Brandon Graham? He can call it Michigan gold. I'd pay to see it.
