Julian Edelman has gnarly playoff beard shaved off for charity

Julian Edelman has gnarly playoff beard shaved off for charity

New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman let his beard grow full and gnarly during the football season, but with the year done the Super Bowl LIII MVP was persuaded into taking it off - for a good cause. In a new interview with NBC Sports' Peter King, Edelman opened up about the suspension and everything that has transpired this year. This is what I was put here to do. He is more hesitant to speak about this season's first four games, in which he did not play because of a PED suspension that he will not (and not cannot) explain.

Belichick has this thing that he says: 'Put everything in the drawer and [don't] worry about it until it's done. You learn a lot from that. "Getting to experience this with them, because they've been in my corner, they've kind of made me who I am", he said, mentioning his parents, Frank and Angela. "I apologize. It'll never happen again".

Edelman said he would match Ellen's donation with his own $10,000. "From this whole thing, I've learned that you've just got to stay in your routine, and you've just got to work your way out of it".

"People don't know what happened".




The New England Patriots have won yet another Super Bowl title, while the AFC East powerhouse has now won three of the last five and two of the last three National Football League championships.

"Once we got into Atlanta, into the preparation, it was frustrating for me", Hoyer said.

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. "I served what I had to serve and I accept that".
