It's been a whirlwind eight days for Julian Edelman.

Last Sunday, the Patriots wideout helped New England capture its sixth Lombardi Trophy, with quarterback Tom Brady claiming his NFL-best sixth Super Bowl ring ... and Edelman earning Super Bowl MVP honors in Atlanta (game-high 10 catches, 141 yards).

The following day, Brady and Edelman toured Walt Disney World, making good on their post-Super Bowl promise of going to Orlando.

On Tuesday, Brady, Edelman, their teammates and roughly 1 million Massachusetts residents (and some from neighboring states) celebrated another Patriots championship, amid unseasonably warm temperatures of 60 degrees.

Later in the week, Edelman joined Ellen DeGeneris' syndicated TV show (which airs daily on 11Alive) ... and shaved his eminently thick beard for charity.

Fast forward to Sunday night: Edelman and teammate Devin McCourty traveled cross country to present an award at The Grammys (Los Angeles), handing out the trophy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance ... to Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga ("Shallow").
