NEW ORLEANS, La. (WGNO – Drew Brees has a new haircut, and it’s a short one.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback posted a video on Instagram showing the close cut.

“Here it goes!” Brees says as the clippers move across his scalp. “It’s going off…”

But Brees’ new do was for a good cause. The future Hall of Fame inductee was taking part in the #savingbyshaving fundraiser for Boston Children’s Hospital.

And Brees quickly realized there’s one more benefit of a bald head.

“It’s gonna be a lot easier to wash my hair now,” he quips in the video.
