Bad day to worst day for Aaron Hernandez. After being arrested in a police investigation of the homicide of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semipro football player, Hernandez was released by the New England Patriots. The Patriots released this statement.
““A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss,” the team said in a statement. “Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation…At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do.”
The police will see now how much Hernandez had to do with the death of Odin but for now he is a player with no team.
The Patriots already had questions about their offense but now you have to wonder what kind of offense the Pats will have now. With Hernandez gone, Gronkowski coming back from multiple surgeries, Danny Amendola first year in the patriots offense, Tom Brady will have a lot of weight on his shoulders to make this offense be as productive as its been in previous seasons.
