Aaron Hernandez has lost a lot the last few weeks, and now it looks as though he can add a friend to that tally. In a letter he apparently wrote to a confidant while awaiting trial behind bars, Hernandez asks the receiver not to leak the damn thing to social media.  No chance.  TMZ has gotten its hands on a letter it claims Hernandez wrote while in jail. In it, he proclaims his innocence while declaring that his ordeal is essentially part of God's plan.  Here's the full letter, and here's a version dutifully transcribed by the guys at NESN: Your letter meant a lot and was very true! I know everything happens for a reason and I know “GOD” has a plan for me and something good will come out of this. The world just makes things out of false accusations and it will all die down especially when they say NOT GUILTY and all the people who turned on me will feel like crap. I’ve always been a great person and known for having an amazing heart! I am a strong person and nothing will break me! A C.O. will never not can they say now for one day have I been down in not with a smile on my face. I know there is a reason I’m going thru this and I will figure it out through my relationship with the Lord. I fell off especially after making all that money but when its all said and done “GOD” put me in the situation for a reason! I’m humbled by this ALREADY and this will change me forever. At least I’ll know my true supporters. Thanks for being one of them! P.S. The pictures are definitely hanging on my walls and def mean a lot! Thanks again brotha! Thanks, Aaron Hernandez à CAN’T WAIT TO sign this again when I’m playing again an prove all the haters and do[wn] talkers WRONG. *Keep this off social media PLEASE! [TMZ]
