The New England Patriots have released tight end Aaron Hernandez.
Wow a sentence I thought I would never type. But it has happen because Hernandez was arrested this morning for his alleged involvement in a murder investigation.
New England released a statement:
“A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss,” words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation.”
The police said he would be arraigned in court later today. We will all know soon what Hernandez was arrested for exactly at some point today.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello released a statement:
“The involvement of an NFL player in a case of this nature is deeply troubling. The Patriots have released Aaron Hernandez, who will have his day in court. At the same time, we should not forget the young man who was the victim in this case and take this opportunity to extend our deepest sympathy to Odin Lloyd’s family and friends.”
