Losing to the New England Patriots the way they did was absolutely devastating for the Los Angeles Rams after looking at all of the accomplishments Sean McVay's team pulled off leading up to Super Bowl 53. Ellen eventually got Edelman to agree to the beard shaving by saying she would donate $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Club if he let her break out the razor.
By the end of it, Edelman looks pretty close to how he did in his rookie headshot from 2009.
According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, the Patriots will be gearing up to sport a potent offensive attack come 2019-20 while adding some depth to the team's wide receiver corps.
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". And this just means he'll have another chance next January to grow out a beard fit for a family of birds. 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.
Before the big shave, Edelman said that winning the Super Bowl - he brought the gleaming Lombardi Trophy with him - is what's most important, but the MVP recognition gave him something personally as well.
"I love you, beard", Edelman said. And my mother, being the loving little lady that she is, I was never late to a practice, she was always there. The Patriots won 13-3.
