Bucs Gm Jason Licht has never been afraid to make a big decision for the Bucs and apparently he’s not afraid to make one when it comes to his appearance, either.

On Monday, Licht kept good on a promise made earlier in the year when the Bucs started their “Cut for a Cure” campaign, a charity in which donations are made to help further pediatric cancer research in return for locks of freshly shaven hair.

Licht promised he would shave his head if the Bucs raised $100,000. They raised $130,000.

“I just wanted to be a part of it,” Licht said, noting that his own children had raised $200 with a neighborhood lemonade stand. “The organization does a great job with this every year, and I felt like I was missing out.” - Licht, via Tampa Bay Times

Other players either had red dye styled into their hair or had their heads shaved and they included: QB Jameis Winston, McCoy, LB Lavonte David, LT Donovan Smith, G Ali Marpet, TE O.J. Howard and others.

It’s cool to see everyone come out for a great cause and make a difference in the community.
