Found August 27, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
New England agreed to a five-year, $40 million extension with tight end Aaron Hernandez on Monday.Fantasy Spin:Hernandez has averaged 62 catches and 736.5 yards during his two seasons in the league. He's also a threat on the ground, having rushed for 61 yards on five carries in last January's playoff game versus the Broncos. Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski (90 receptions, 1,327 yards, 17 TD in 2011) were part of the most productive tight end duo in league history last season and both players should be just as dominant in 2012.
