Talk about a sleeper going to the wayside. It’s hard to call Hernandez a sleeper but I think that’s exactly what he is with Gronk injured for the rest of his life (he’s due back early on this season but we know that will never happen). Hernandez was mostly injured for the first part of last season but with Gronk out in weeks 11-16, he averaged 56 yards a game and had 3 TDs, not to mention 85 yards a game in 2 playoff games. He was a legitimate top 5 TE for the Patriots with Gronk constantly injured. My guess is Hernandez would have gone in the late 5-6 rounds and I would accept him on my team in a heartbeat. Guys who I’d rather have ahead of him would be Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten, Heath Miller, and Vernon Davis. Dennis Pitta and Brandon Myers would also be on that watch list. I honestly believed that Hernandez was going to be a fantasy stud with the Patriots discarding all of their WR’s and having him as a prime receiving target. The murder story on this poor sap is excruciatingly painful to read about.
USA Today – Prosecutors allege that Hernandez picked up Lloyd around 2:30 a.m. on June 17th and that they drove through Boston before heading back to North Attleborough. McCauley claimed that Hernandez was unhappy that Lloyd had spoken with people that he didn’t like at Boston nightclub several nights earlier. The prosecutor alleges that several people heard multiple gun shots near an industrial park close to Hernandez’s home around 3:23 a.m. and says that home surveillance cameras captured Hernandez carrying a semiautomatic firearm as he and two other men returned to his home at 3:30 a.m.
What a thug. This could be a case of some of the worst decision making known to man. He’s in the neighborhood of receiving 40 million dollars over 5 years for playing football and this is his course of action for taking care of someone for talking shit. Why can’t these guys just stay in their house with their wife and kids and watch Disney movies? The footage had to have been so plain and simple to see that he must know that he is dead to rights. You can tell in his expression that he knows he’s fucked. He doesn’t even look like he cares because they probably have so much evidence against him that he knows there’s now point of wasting emotional energy. How dumb do you have to be to leave a rental car under your name at the scene as well as dumping the body close to where you live? Talk about wasted talent. #TebowforTE
Could this be the end of Aaron Hernandez NFL career? Your thoughts?
