Aaron Hernandez, the former star New England Patriot tight end who has been at the center of a police investigation since a body was found near his Massachusetts home, was charged Wednesday with the murder of a semi-professional football player.
Hernandez, who reportedly pleaded not guilty to six charges that included murder and other weapons charges, did not react inside the Attleboro District courtroom, which was filled with journalists, victim family members and court officers.

Gee he is an ex already.....
The Ravens will eventually pick him up. /s
Yeah, they released him 2 hrs after he was booked. I’m surprised it took that long.
A white hispanic?
Yep he was released by the Pats 2 hours after being arrested. Several hours before being charged. Team must have seen something we haven’t.
And yet Josh Brent is still officially with the Cowboys.
Is this not proof that there is a God and he really likes Tebow?
Some teams don’t tolerate any of it. After the Rae Carruth incident my Carolina Panthers put a morals clause in the players contracts. They get no chances. One arrest and they’re gone!
The irony is, without Hernandez, Tebow wouldn’t have been as big of a deal while at Florida, Hernandez was a huge part of their offense.
Is it immoral to be arrested?
why did they advertise that he was a suspect for a week before arresting him?
Not what I’m saying, and I used the term generically. Point is, if they are involved in anything that leads to their arrest, they’re gone, no 2nd, and 3rd chances.
Right or wrong, I think Jerry Richardson got his point across.
You can take the hood out of the barrio but ...
Tebow is not a tight end. You don’t just get a crash course in playing the position then excel at it in the NFL.
Hernandez is a huge loss on the field for the Pats. Tebow does not compensate for that.
This just shows to go you how dumb I am.
In all my life I never knew there was a charge of murder of a semi-professional Football Player.
Does that carry a heavier penalty than just murdering a couch potato?
That would seem to indicate that Pats management was tipped off in advance that the cops had really overwhelming evidence.
Actually I thought you said if you are arrested you’re off the team.
My friend and I were leaving the Sacramento Airport in the early 80s. The cops swooped on him and arrested him.
He and I were peace officers coming to Sac to do some training.
He was released a few hours later when it was discovered he look liked a suspect wanted by the Oakland PD and the cips were told he was on the flught we took.
Anytime someone is “punished” for being arrested, I hesitate a little before I agree.
In your follow-up you said the circumstances in which he was arrested. I can agree that a college or team could have rules that you should avoid certain circumstances. For instance everyone at the party is doing drugs, well, get out as soon as you realize.
I worked with a guy of the negroid persuasion when I went to work in prison. He remained in the old neighborhood in which he grew up on the cusp between Willowbrook and Compton in LA. His mom and aunt lived in the same house and he wanted to be near the family.
He was constantly detained and arrested a couple of times for being outside while black, usually walking home ater organizing sports for the neighborhood kids. He missed work one day and his wife said he was in jail. Actually he was in a detention cell at the nearby precinct. The phone call inquiry from our superintendent got him out.
I hope you would not impose morals charges against him and fire him.
They have used some common sense in enforcement. We had special teams guy (Jarrod Cooper) good player, got arrested for DUI, and they found painkillers in the car. He said he was innocent, and the team took no action pending the trial.
Of course 2 weeks later he was pulled over again, and this time they found pot in the car, so he was gone after that.
LOL also a pain killer no doubt.
Anytime you need more arrest stories just ping me.
