Jason Kelce may look like he is about to take a trip to Flavortown, USA but the Philadelphia Eagles center explained on Thursday there is a good reason behind his newly dyed blonde hair.
He simply lost a bet.
Kelce revealed to reporters on Thursday that he made a friendly wager with teammate Zach Ertz, who arrived to training camp with dyed blonde hair, that the team would trade the tight end by Week 1.
Obviously, Ertz was not traded despite his unhappiness and GM Howie Roseman’s willingness to shop the tight end, which meant that Kelce had to match his teammate’s new hairstyle.
“My wife’s definitely not a fan,” Kelce said, per NFL.com. “It’s a bet I’m happy to lose. So not happy with the hair, but happy I lost the bet.”
