Ellen DeGeneres shaves off Julian Edelman's beard

Ellen DeGeneres shaves off Julian Edelman's beard

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. After the briefest of hesitations, because after all "It's kind of grown on me", Edelman agreed to the deal, and threw in his own $10,000 donation.

"People don't know what happened", Edelman told King. By the time Edelman was named MVP of last Sunday's Super Bowl, it had long since stopped being a novelty.

"We still got meat on the bone", Edelman told King. 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. This is what I was put here to do. "This is what I sacrificed all my time for - my friends, my family, everything like that", Edelman explained. A lot of things go down and then you end up ... a huge low of your life. You learn a lot from that.

"When (the suspension) happened, I had a strong corner behind me", Edelman said. "I served what I had to serve and I accept that".

And sure enough, a little over a week after the Patriots' sixth Super Bowl win (and Belichick's eighth), pictures of the updated "VIII Rings" began to make their way around the internet on Monday.

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.

"That's what people don't understand with me".

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