Tom Brady gets his playoff beard shaved for charity

Julian Edelman was deserving MVP but he's not a Hall of Famer

Julian Edelman doesn't just have short sleeves on his New England Patriots jersey to show off the bicep curls he does in the offseason. He received his hardware for the MVP heroics on the show.

Elsewhere, LB Kyle Van Noy appeared on ESPN this week to lambast one of the most vocal critics of the Patriots and QB Tom Brady in particular.

Belichick has this thing that he says: 'Put everything in the drawer and [don't] worry about it until it's done.

Edelman did not shave at all from the start of the season until now.

Beard shaving kicks off at the 8-minute mark. 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.

"I always like it cut extremely, super tight, so there's less surface area that they can put a hand on me or grab", Edelman said on Ellen on Friday. "It's been a hell of a year".

The Steelers of 1974 to 1979 are still viewed as arguably the greatest team in National Football League history, and only two of the team's wins - a victory over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XL and a defeat of the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII - have come in any other era. The 32 year old wide receiver joined the Patriots in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
