Tom Brady probably hasn’t talked to new teammate Tim Tebow about Aaron Hernandez much yet, but the two did discuss the former Patriots tight end after a playoff game in 2012. The Patriots dismantled Tebow’s Broncos by a score of 45-10 in that divisional round game. Afterward, the two “star” quarterbacks spent a few moments chatting about the game and even talking about two of Tebow’s teammates at the University of Florida in Hernandez and linebacker Brandon Spikes. In the encounter, Brady and Tebow exchange some pleasantries before briefly chatting about the two younger Patriots players, as can be seen in this NFL.com video of the postgame handshake. Check out a transcript of the exchange below. Brady: “Good game, Tim. You’re having a great year.” Tebow: “Thanks. I appreciate it.” Brady: “Keep it up. Good things happen to good people. Tebow: “I appreciate that.” Brady: “And I’m trying to watch over Aaron and Brandon.”  Tebow: “I appreciate that, too, man. They’re good guys.” Brady: “[Yeah] they’re a lot to handle.” So, aside from Tebow’s clear “appreciation” for just about anything and everything Brady says, it’s interesting to hear Brady not only mention that he was watching over Hernandez but also noting that he and Spikes were a handful. That’s not to say they were necessarily difficult to handle or even a problem, but it does seem to carry much more weight now given Hernandez’s murder charge. Oh, and a H/T to Masshole Sports for scrounging up the video. Have a question for Luke Hughes? Send it to him via Twitter at @LukeFHughes or send it here.
