Seattle QB Russell Wilson letting his hair out as playoffs approach

You can’t see it in the video below, but Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson confirmed today that he is continuing with a playoff tradition of letting his hair grow out until the season is over.

In fact, Wilson said he actually hasn’t cut his hair since the last time the Seahawks play the same opponent they will see Saturday in the playoffs — Carolina.

Before the first snap of the Carolina game on Oct. 26, Wilson said receiver Doug Baldwin asked him “hey man, are you going to grow your hair out again?”

Wilson happily ripped off his hat to show that his hair indeed continues to grow.

Wilson said he also did it his junior year of high school when his team went on to win the state title and did it last year when the Seahawks won the Super Bowl.

“So might as well go with it,” he said.

Wilson also talked in the video below about what he sees out of the Carolina defense and more:
