Ellen DeGeneres shaves off Julian Edelman's beard

Julian Edelman beard

Julian Edelman beard

Taking his coach's words far too literally, Edelman put his razor in the drawer before this past season began and chose 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.

Best of all, however, he agreed to give the beard a farewell in exchange for a $10,000 donation to Boys & Girls Club of Boston - a donation he told Ellen he'd match for a total of $20,000 to the after-school program.

"I love you, beard", Edelman said.

The show aired on Friday. "So this is like a full-family kind of win", he said.

Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman made an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" this week, where he discussed his role in the Patriots' sixth championship and was presented with the Pete Rozelle Trophy for his efforts in last Sunday's victory against the Los Angeles Rams. And my mother, being the loving little lady that she is, I was never late to a practice.

The Rams ended up falling to the Patriots 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

He told Ellen he let his beard grow because he was following literally the instruction of team head coach Bill Belichick, who told his players at the start of the season to "put everything in the drawer" and worry about it when the season is over.

At the end of the day, Edelman lost the beard for a great cause.
