Aaron Hernandez admitted to NFL teams during the 2010 draft process that he had failed drug tests while at the University of Florida. Media reports right after the draft took that number closer to six.
Now, amid all the speculation surrounding Hernandez’s past, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley has finally come out in response to the reports of the Gators’ negligence, according to Al.com.
