Rookie Cushing Blogs About His New Hair Style

Well, I got a Mohawk. Everyone has asked me if the veterans made me do it. I think it was a little bit of both, a little hazing, but also I figured it was probably a smart deal just to do it and I think a lot of guys were impressed that I cut it. Some of the guys were shocked that I would go that far for the team and I think that took a lot off my back.

I signed my first contract and I feel great. I’m an NFL player now. Up to this point, I was just a draft pick. I signed on the dotted line and I couldn’t be happier, this is my job now and I’m happy with how everything turned out and I just want to play football.

Practice is going real well. I missed the first two days, which were no-contact. My first day back we had shoulder pads on so I had to adjust real fast for a 9-on-7 contact drill. Had to snap back into football mode. I knew what to expect, the speed picked up, everyone was trying to prove a point out there. I thought I did well.

I don’t mind coming in with all the hype and expectations. That’s what I want, to step into that role and handle everything that’s expected of me.
