Many companies have rescinded any connection to Aaron Hernandez in recent weeks, and yet another pulled out on Thursday. Panini, a trading card and memorabilia company, confirmed to ESPN on Thursday that they had removed Hernandez’s image from over 500,000 sticker books produced for the upcoming NFL season. They join companies such as Cytosport (the makes of Muscle Milk), Puma, EA Sports among others who have ended sponsorship agreements or pulled Hernandez from their products in recent weeks. The company recently produced 1 million Tim Tebow stickers, which they will use in place of Hernandez. They plan to hand the Tebow stickers out at events and have agreed to send one to any customer who already received a Hernandez sticker in a pack. “We felt strongly that making these changes was the right thing to do, for Panini and our products but, more importantly, for our fans and collectors,” said Jason Howarth, Panini’s vice president of marketing.

But he almost didn't stay for the whole thing, threatening to walk out when Dan Dahler tried to turn the subject towards Aaron Hernandez.

Dan Klecko knows exactly why Rob Gronkowski stood up and nearly walked out of an interview on CBS This Morning when repeatedly asked about the Aaron Hernandez murder case.
Gronkowski wasn't just agitated or uneasy. He was more than that.
"He was scared," Klecko, a defensive lineman for the New England Patriots from 2003-06 told FOX Sports by phone this week. "...
Probably the worst Patriot season in recent memory.

After the shock of seeing Brady keeled over on the ground in the first game of that season wore off, it became a pretty entertaining year. Who thought we would be watching Matt Cassel defy the...
