Today, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with 2 counts of first degree murder.
There are some bad sports-associated dudes, but Aaron Hernandez is the worst. Worse than the Juice, who at least had the decency to leave the sport before going on his murderous rampage. Worse than Ray Lewis, who knows full well who killed those two young men but rather than being a rat, kept the families from getting justice. Worse than Jerry Sandusky, who ruined far more lives but didn’t end them.
Aaron Hernandez had a bad history. In fact, he might have been a much higher draft selection if he hadn’t failed at least one drug test in college. New England took a chance on him and felt the team could change him. Instead, Hernandez submerged his true self and ended up committing multiple crimes in New England.
I’m sure Hernandez was just a dream under “I only care about football” coach Urban Meyer. THAT guy recruited a bunch of bad dudes to the University of Florida. 31 arrests in five years? You’ve got to be kidding me!
