News broke yesterday that the two lawyers representing former Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez have filed a request to obtain the medical records from his time with the team. Assumedly the lawyers hope that the records will help prove Hernandez innocent in the multitude of charges levied against him.

But isn’t it more fun to speculate? Check out the official request documents here and see for yourself.
