Chargers Eric Weddle dyed his beard to look like Santa Claus

Monday December 15th, 2014

Eric Weddle spends most of the year as a mild-mannered safety for the San Diego Chargers, but when Christmas approaches he transforms into Weddle Claus with some help from a can of white beard dye.

For The Win reports that Weddle was considering waiting until next Sunday to bust out his new seasonal facial hair, but luckily for fans of both the NFL and Christmas he brought it out a week early.

The homage to St. Nick was not enough to pull out a win for the Chargers against the Denver Broncos on Sunday though, as they fell 22-10.
