Ravens lineman shaves head to honor Pagano

It’s a testament to Colts coach Chuck Pagano, that not only cheerleaders are willing to shave their heads in a show of support for him, but players on other teams as well.

Ravens defensive lineman Arthur Jones has shaved his head and all his facial hair in tribute to Pagano, who used to be the Ravens defensive coordinator, as Pagano fights leukemia.

“It’s just hair,” Jones said, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “It’s just to show that we care and love him. A bunch of defensive linemen, we shaved our face for him. He’s a great man and a great leader. He’s going to be back coaching and kicking butt.

“Absolutely, this guy has so much passion and loves the sport every single day and came ready to work and had us fired up. I’m pretty sure that’s something he brought to Indy, and I’m sure those guys are going to love him, too.”

Pagano has finished his chemotherapy, and hopes to return to the sidelines this season. Whenever he does, you can probably expect many other tributes such as Jones’.

    Get well Chuck. And pls come back to the Ravens. You left a top 5 defense, now the new guys have turned it into a bottom 26.
