If there's hair, it's a Matthews

The player at the Senior Bowl with the most football pedigree is undoubtedly linebacker Casey Matthews from Oregon. His father (Clay Sr.), grandfather (Clay) and uncle (Bruce) all played in the NFL. And brother Clay Jr. currently plays for the Green Bay Packers.

Casey Matthews admits that because of his NFL lineage, there are greater expectations. But he said: “I expect a lot of myself to be honest. That’s just how it is with the last name. Obviously people know what type of family we come from, but you’ve got to demand a lot from yourself.”

Like the other members of his family, Casey has the below-shoulder length locks. When asked if every Matthews has to have long hair, Casey smiled and said, “I think so. It just happened to be like that. I guess people notice us because of it. I guess my dad had it long so the kids have to carry on the tradition.”
