Julian Edelman shaves beard during taping of 'The Ellen Show'

Julian Edelman shaves beard during taping of 'The Ellen Show'

The NFL also disciplined Robey-Coleman for a controversial hit on New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis in the NFC Championship game.

Edelman taped an interview with Ellen Degeneres on "The Ellen Show" that aired on Friday.

He fielded several questions about the season and his facial feature, including how he maintains the beard and if he is every tackled by defenders pulling on it. Edelman said he has not cut his beard this season.

"It's grown on me", he joked. 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.

Edelman said he would match Ellen's donation with his own $10,000.


Through the miracle of television, there was already a barber's chair, cape with the Patriots' logo and clippers waiting to be rolled out in front of the audience.

Before going to work she asked Edelman if he had any last words for his beard - he did: "I love you beard, it's been a hell of a year".

Given the fact that this past season was a "down" year for Tom Brady and company, them winning Super Bowl 53 proves that they can reach this game yet again next season.

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