Ellen DeGeneres shaves off Julian Edelman's beard

Ellen DeGeneres shaves off Julian Edelman's beard

According to Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, Coach Bill Belichick tells his players at the start of each National Football League campaign to "put everything in the drawer" and worry about it when the season is done.

The three-time Super Bowl champ took some time to explain what the award meant to himself as well as his family, telling Ellen, "Just winning the game is what you want". Ellen offered to donate $10,000 to one of his favorite charities, the Boys & Girls Club of America, in exchange for shaving the beard off. Edelman agreed to it, and even matched her $10K donation.

It's a curious pledge - "It'll never happen again" - in a situation in which Edelman also said he "really [doesn't] know what happened".

Head coach Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots looks on prior to the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on January 20, 2019 in Kansas City, Missouri.

She asked if he wanted to say goodbye to his facial hair, and Edelman said, "I love you, beard. I apologize. It'll never happen again". "So this is like a full-family kind of win", he said.

Days after helping the New England Patriots win their sixth Super Bowl and capturing Super Bowl LIII MVP honors in the process, Julian Edelman accomplished maybe his greatest feat of the year.

Edelman became to first-ever Jewish player to get the MVP. The Patriots won 13-3. "I have to shower after I eat".

Julian Edelman spoke with Peter King this weekend about the highs and lows of this past season, which ended with him being named Super Bowl MVP.

Edelman said focusing on returning in Week 5 is what kept him from slumping into a dark place.
