Brett Keisel and his beard are parting ways tonight. They have grown close together, but it is time for the two to go their separate ways. The beard might be asking for a little too much money in contract negotiations and Keisel is ready to have a fresh outlook.

Keisel’s shaving of the beard will benefit Children’s Hospital in the Pittsburgh area.

This is such a sad day:

The league’s next top beard would probably have to go to Eric Weddle.
