The man is a thug and shouldn't be in a position to be idolized by young kids anyway.

Good riddance is all I have to say.

Quote:
Hernandez became a father to a daughter on Nov. 6, and he said it made him think.

"I'm engaged now and I have a baby. So it's just going to make me think of life a lot differently and doing things the right way," he said. "Now, another one is looking up to me. I can't just be young and reckless Aaron no more. I'm going to try to do the right things, become a good father and (have her) be raised like I was raised."

The loss of Hernandez deprives the Patriots of the second half of one of the league's best tight end tandems. Fellow Pro Bowl selection Rob Gronkowski has had five operations this offseason on his back and broken left forearm.

Hernandez was chosen for the Pro Bowl in 2011, when he caught 79 passes for 910 yards and seven touchdowns. He missed 10 games last season with an ankle injury.

In 38 games over his three NFL seasons, the 6-foot-1, 245-pound Hernandez has 175 receptions for 1,956 yards and 18 touchdowns. Last summer, the Patriots gave Hernandez a five-year contract worth $41 million just months after the team locked up Gronkowski through 2019.

"Aaron's improved a lot," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said at the time. "He's worked hard, he's improved a lot in all phases of the game - the passing game, the running game, protection and his overall versatility. He's doing a good job for us."

Despite the size that makes him a capable blocker, Hernandez has the speed and moves of a wide receiver and is elusive after making a catch.

Born in Bristol, Conn., Hernandez played at Bristol High School before attending Florida, where he won the John Mackey Award as the nation's best tight end as a junior in 2009. He was college teammates with two current Patriots - quarterback Tim Tebow and linebacker Brandon Spikes on the team that won the national championship in 2009.

Hernandez had shoulder surgery in April, but was expected to be ready for training camp. The Patriots have not said which shoulder was operated on.
http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/06/26/3471340/pats-release-hernandez-in-homicide.html#storylink=cpy

My professional opinion: He will have enough time to heal without being rushed onto the field again. (big sarcastic smiley)

Wow...what will the Pats do at TE (such a important position for them.) now?

Move up a practice squad player and keep rolling along?

Default Re: Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez to be Questioned

I just saw he was charged with murder. Wow. The NFL cannot be happy at all with one of it's star players being charged with murder. This goes well beyond the Ray Lewis type incident.

Has there been another currently active player charged with murder in the modern era? I can't think of any although a bunch have gotten into legal hot water.

If by some miracle, he is acquitted, his NFL career is toast. At the moment, I suspect he has bigger fish to fry.

As for the Pats, they rely on the TE so much it's not funny. Now one of their two main cogs is up on murder charges, and the other one is injured. Mr. Brady cannot be too happy. I do know this though - BB will make adjustments. That's part of what makes him a great coach. He won't try to fit a round peg into a square hole. Brady will make adjustments too. And they may not be a SB team this year, but they'll find a way to be good. They always do.

Strike one for his notorious attorney.


From USA TODAY:

Quote:
Judge Daniel J. O'Shea ordered that Hernandez be held without bail despite attorney Michael Fee's argument that Hernandez is not a flight risk.

Maybe I've missed it, but has anyone read the details of the murder? They're saying it was an execution type murder? How was the guy murdered to make it execution style?

Carruth was Conspiracy To Commit Murder. He didn't actually pull the trigger, but he ordered a guy to do it and stopped the car so the guy could do it.

And apparently all because the woman wouldn't get an abortion.

From listening to hearing, there were multiple gunshot wounds, and the victim was turned in a defensive posture, and was alive and left for dead. Dont quote me...
