Re: Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez to be Questioned
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and former tight end Aaron Hernandez had a tight bond during the player's three seasons with the team.
Hernandez would often greet the owner with a kiss on the cheek and donated $50,000 to a charity created in honor of Kraft's late wife. Kraft said that the former Florida standout volunteered to take biweekly drug tests if the Patriots took a chance on him and that Hernandez informed him on draft night that the first jersey he ever owned was that of former New England quarterback Drew Bledsoe.
“He was a New England kid who was a Patriot," Kraft said of the Bristol, Conn., native. "I thought it was cool.”
So it's no wonder that Kraft says that he and the rest of the organization were fooled if the murder charge against Hernandez is true.
