Arizona Cardinals rookies hazed with unique haircuts

Rookie hazing comes in all shapes and sizes when it comes to the National Football League.

Sometimes it involves carrying pads off the practice field, other times it may involve bringing in fresh donuts before the morning walk-through or being taped to the goal post.

But being the 10-year veteran he is, Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett put his own imprint on the annual training camp tradition.

Dockett brought out the hair clippers and razors Wednesday night and his victims — rookies Tyrann Mathieu, Kevin Minter, Padric Scott, Alex Okafor, Dan Giordano, Kenny Demons, Javon Harris, Tony Jefferson and Stepfan Taylor — suffered the consequences.

From Friar Tuck to Mr. T to shaved eyebrows and imprinted numbers, it wasn’t pretty. Brace yourselves.
