Things aren't looking any better for Aaron Hernandez
This doesn't necessarily mean that Hernandez pulled the trigger, but it certainly does not bode well for him, as it means that police believe he was connected to the murder in some way.
In terms of his career in the NFL, this could have enormous ramifications for Hernandez. He recently signed a monster deal with the Patriots that included around $12M in guaranteed money, so if he were to receive jail time, the Patriots could cut him at a cost of about $8M, and his career would essentially be over.
There are a ton of rumors swirling around about this situation, including one saying that the murder was drug related, and also that the victim was dating Hernandez's girlfriend's sister.
One theory is that Hernandez may have been driving the car involved in the murder.
Regardless, this is starting to look very bad for Hernandez and the Patriots, who already had some issues at the tight end position with Rob Gronkowski recovering from back and forearm surgery.
Not to make light of a serious situation, but could this lead to Tim Tebow getting some playing time at tight end?
