After signing a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers for $1 million, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that pitcher Brian Wilson could make more than his entire season's salary — by simply shaving his trademark beard off.
A razor blade company called 800Razors.com has been in negotiations with the 31-year-old baseball pro to have him shave off his beard and they've offered him a lucrative 7-figure deal, which would also have Brian become a brand ambassador for the company.
"His management feels we need to match his present salary of $1 million at a minimum," Co-Founder and President of 800Razors.com Philip Masiello told Radar.
"Over the weekend and continuing today, we have been in discussions with his management at MVP sports to finalize the terms under which Brian would participate in a beard shaving promotion and endorsement. The discussions commenced Friday and are continuing through today."

"His beard is iconic, we are in the quality razor industry and want to partner with other shaving icons to show how great our product is. If it can tackle shaving a beard like his, it can work wonders on the average man," Masiello continued.
"Brian is one of the greatest closers in baseball today and we have one of the greatest razors in the industry today. He is unique and fun and brings a difference to his game and that is what 800Razors is all about."
The former San Francisco Giants player touts himself as a "World Champion Beard" on his Twitter account.
"We are a young company out to change the shaving industry and have not done anything like this before and would be honored to have Brian be our first," Masiello concluded.
