Tom Brady began his Championship off-season by shaving off his playoff beard for charity.

The Patriots quarterback got a shave fit for a six-time Super Bowl champion at Gillette’s world headquarters in Boston Thursday morning.

“This is the first morning that I woke up and wasn’t completely exhausted,” said Brady, who has been to Super Bowl parades at Disney World and Boston this week.

He spoke a little bit about the playoff beard tradition among athletes before the shave.

He took some questions during the event, divulging that he’s indulged in margaritas since winning, he’s going on vacation to Costa Rica and no, he’s not running for president.

After the ceremonial shave, Gillette donated $35,000 each to the Boys and Girls Club of South Boston, Best Buddies and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Brady also signed a Patriots-branded Gillette razor which will then be auctioned off. 

That money will go to Brady’s favorite charities.

What about Edelman? Now that’s a playoff beard.
