While New England Patriots fans are among the most loyal in the bunch, we’ve learned they too have boundaries…and shooting someone in the head is one of them. So there weren’t many surprises when fans of former tight end Aaron Hernandez jumped ship after he was accused of murdering an associate last month in Massachusetts. While they took advantage of the opportunity in droves to trade in their Hernandez jerseys for something a little less…”murder-y”, apparently the fallen NFL star still has a few “Team Hernandez” troopers willing to ride or die with him. (And as we’ve learned, if you ride with Hernandez, there is a chance you might literally die with him too.)
Check out what was spotted on the heads of two NFL players who also happen to be former teammates of Hernandez from the University of Florida.
Yep, that’s the Pouncey twins, Maurkice of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Mike of the Miami Dolphins, doing their best to never get endorsements by wearing “Free Hernandez” hats to a Mia
BEST OF MAXIM
In the wake of the Aaron Hernandez murder case, I have a lot of questions. That need answers. Such as 1.) Why have the New England Patriots continued to sign/draft malcontents and players with character issues? 2.) Why didn’t they do a better job vetting Aaron Hernandez? Or did they see the warning signs and just ignore them? 3.) What does The Patriot Way really mean today? Hasn’t...
Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and five other gun-related charges for the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd last month. As soon as Hernandez was implicated in the murder, the New England Patriots began distancing themselves from the tight end. They cut him the morning he was arrested. Though the team [...]
The Pouncey Brothers are University of Florida alums, so that is the connection between them and Aaron Hernandez. Technically, it is innocent until proven guilty and every defendant has a presumption of innocence, so there shouldn’t be anything wrong with wearing these hats.

This could be one of the dumbest things ever done by high profile athletes. Really, this makes Ochocinco taping his lawyer on the rear after a verdict seem smart. Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder and all signs point towards him being guilty. But that did not stop the Pouncey twins from wearing “Free Hernandez” hats at a party.
There are rumors that the Pouncey brothers...
Hot News for TE Aaron Hernandez
We like they way these hats fit Juan…
NFL players Mike and Maurkice Pouncey rocked Free Hernandez hats to a party last night. Not so sure that’s a good look, I’m sure Mr. Goodell will have something to say about it.

Mike and Maurkice Pouncey are apparently firm believers in “innocent until proven guilty.”
The identical twin centers were spotted wearing “Free Hernandez” hats at a nightclub. Mike and Maurkice, who play for the Dolphins and Steelers, respectively, were teammates with Aaron Hernandez at the University of Florida. Mike was Hernandez’s roommate in Gainesville.
The Pouncey brothers were both teammates of Aaron Hernandez, so when they showed up on the internet wearing "Free Hernandez" hats, it wasn't surprising.
It also wasn't surprising when their respective teams, the Dolphins and Steelers, were reportedly not happy about that incident. Pittsburgh appears to have gotten to the older brother Maurkice, as he today released...
I hear people saying that with the news of Rob Gronkowski's injury and Aaron Hernandez's soon to be jail sentence, you need to spend more on tight ends. Nothing could be farther from the truth.The post Auction League Best Buys Volume 4 appeared first on Gridiron Experts.
You have a fantasy football team names picked up?
In America you are deemed innocent until proven guilty. However, the court of public opinion often operates from a slightly different tilt. Two twin brother NFL players are showing their support for accused murderer, former Patriot, Aaron Hernandez. The Pouncey twins played with Hernandez at the University of Florida and won a BCS title together. The twins have set internet tongues...
Late night talk show host Conan O’Brien took the opportunity to throw a zinger in the New England Patriots’ direction during one of his recent opening monologues. Conan was discussing a new DC Comic in which Superman kills someone, then jokes that the Patriots signed him afterwards – obviously a reference to the whole Aaron Hernandez murder saga.
On a related note, Superman...
Three weeks ago, Carlos Ortiz had a much different relationship with former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. The 27-year-old was not a star witness who may be providing investigators with enough information to put Hernandez away for life. Instead, he was a close friend. Ortiz hangs around on a street called Davis Drive [...]
Brothers Mike and Maurkice Pouncey took some heat over the weekend when a photo of the NFL centers wearing “Free Hernandez” hats, as in former Florida teammate Aaron Hernandez, at a nightclub surfaced on the interwebs. Now, they appear to be backing away from that staunch statement.
Maurkice took to Twitter on Monday morning to express his deep regret for appearing to make...
When the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos faced each other toward the end of the 2011 season, reporters couldn’t wait to capture the postgame handshake between Tom Brady and Tim Tebow. Brady and Tebow are two of the most popular players in football, and Tebow had been defying the odds at that point by [...]
