What Bill Belichick Told Julian Edelman When He Drafted Him In 2009

What Bill Belichick Told Julian Edelman When He Drafted Him In 2009

He fielded several questions about the season and his facial feature, including how he maintains the beard and if he is every tackled by defenders pulling on it. Edelman said he has not cut his beard this season. Edelman agreed to match the donation.

"I love you, beard", he joked before the big cut.

The show won't air until this afternoon, but you can check out the footage in the video embedded below. "So this is like a full-family kind of win", he said. "My father was a tough, hard-nosed guy and pushed me to limits I never thought I could get to". And my mother, being the loving little lady that she is, I was never late to a practice, she was always there. She took care of me for a long time.

The NFL fined Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman for a hit on a defenseless player in the New England Patriots' 13-3 win in Super Bowl LIII on February 3.


Throughout Edelman's career, he continues to prove he plays at another level during the postseason.

If Rams fans need a reminder, Edelman made 10 catches for 141 yards and was named Super Bowl MVP.

"Hey well, uh, you're a hell of a football player", Edelman told NBC's Peter King about his draft-day phone call with Belichick.

Hopefully someone touched up the shave Ellen gave him before he left the studio.
