Julian Edelman has gnarly playoff beard shaved off for charity

Edelman

The Patriots receiver has lost his signature beard.

Taking his coach's words far too literally, Edelman put his razor in the drawer before this past season began and made a decision to just let it all grow, to the point where his beard expanded past the contours of Edelman's rather compact head to become its own separate entity.

The show won't air until this afternoon, but you can check out the footage in the video embedded below.

Degeneres made Edelman an offer: I'll donate $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston if you let me shave the beard right now. Edelman agreed to match the donation.

Ellen led him to a barber's chair that miraculously rolled on to the set and snapped on a smock bearing the logos of both The Ellen Show and the Patriots.

"I love you, beard", he joked before Ellen buzzed his face. After shaving off both Edelman's beard and mustache, Ellen quipped that she would auction off the hair ball for more donation money.

"But getting the MVP is kind of a win for me and my other team, and that's my family". She took care of me for a long time.

Not only do the Patriots already have a talented wide receiver group, led by Super Bowl 53 MVP Julian Edelman, but the AFC East franchise also has quite the loaded backfield as well, with a litany of running backs now on call.

It's been a whirlwind 18 months for Edelman, who missed the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL, and he recently sat down with NBC's Peter King to discuss the Super Bowl, the Patriots and his suspension, although he didn't divulge much on the latter.
