Julian Edelman's massive beard is gone.

The Patriots wide receiver shaved it during an appearance on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show," which will air Friday afternoon.

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

“Coach Belichick has this thing that he says, ‘Put everything in the drawer and (don’t) worry about it until the season’s done.’ And I put my razor in the drawer,” he said. “He’s a crazy, intimidating man.”

Degenerous said she would donate $10,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of America if she could shave it, and then Edelman matched it for a total of $20,000.
