Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brian Wilson, whose beard became famous during his time with the Giants, has been offered $1 million to shave it off.

On Tuesday, RadarOnline.com reported the offer from 800Razors.com (via CBSSports.com's Mike Axisa).

From the RadarOnline report:

"His management feels we need to match his present salary of $1 million at a minimum," said 800Razors.com co-founder and president Philip Masiello. "The discussions commenced Friday and are continuing."

On Thursday, Wilson made his first appearance in the major leagues since April 2012. He was a a three-time All-Star with the San Francisco Giants but missed nearly all of last season and the beginning of this year after undergoing Tommy John surgery. The Dodgers signed Wilson in late July and activated him earlier this week.
