Bryce Harper is one of the most closely-watched MLB players this offseason, and his latest move may be his most confusing one yet.

The free agent, who stands to make up to $400 million depending on what kind of contract he signs next, has been relatively tight-lipped about where he wants to end up. He’s dropped all kinds of hints about possibly moving to Chicago, but nobody really knows. So those of us following his story closely are reading into everything he’s doing in the offseason and running with it — which brings us to today, Monday. (RELATED: Bryce Harper Gives Cryptic Hint About Where He May End Up)

“I’ve been around the world twice, talked to everyone once. I’ve been to three world fairs. I am a hard bodied, hairy-chested, rootin, tootin, shootin, parachutin, demolition double cap crimping Frogman. There ain’t nothing I can’t do. No sky too high, no sea too rough, no Muff to tough. I’ve learned a lot of lessons in my life. Never shoot a large caliber man with a small caliber bullet. I drive all kinds of trucks. 2x’s, 4x’s, 6x’s even those big trucks that bend and go TSSHHTT TSSHHTT when you step on the brakes. Anything in life worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards. I’m a lover, I’m a fighter, I’m a UDT/NAVY SEAL Diver. If your feeling froggy than you better jump because this Frogman has been there, done that and is going back for more.” I’m so blessed to be from this great Country! It was an honor to be around so many great men and woman who are willing to sacrifice all for everybody around! I will be forever grateful #Navy

Harper confused a litany of his fans and followers when he debuted a video Thursday on Twitter of his brand new haircut, which also appears to have been permed.

His wife posted a similar photo Monday, confirming the cut was real:

I don’t really have any explanation for this haircut other than he could be showing solidarity for Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes.
