NFL fans have become accustomed to seeing clean-shaven Tom Brady, as he just wrapped up his 19th season — winning his six title, by the way — and he’s had that look for nearly the majority of his career.
But the Patriots quarterback had a bit of an edge to him this season, embracing the underdog role with his “We’re still here” catch phrase. As such, he also grew out his “beard” — at least for him, that is.
Brady’s beard never got anywhere near Julian Edelman’s length, but he did have some facial hair, at least. He did shave it on Thursday, though, at a promo for Gillette (of course, where else?).
Here’s a “before” photo.
And the shave.
That’s a lot of cameras for a simple beard shave. We don’t draw a crowd like that every morning, unfortunately.
