The New England Patriots ProShop will offer a free jersey exchange of any #81 Hernandez jersey purchased at the Patriots ProShop or online at PatriotsProShop.com for a new Patriots jersey of comparable value. The free jersey exchange will be available exclusively at the Patriots ProShop the weekend of Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7.
A.B. Classy move by Robert Kraft and the New England Patriots. But before we start gushing about how great the organization is – let’s remember this is also another way for them to distance themselves from accused murderer Aaron Hernandez. It’s the same reason NFL.com took down Hernandez’s career stats. No organization, league or person wants any connection with the former Patriots #81. And I’m not just talking about Randy Moss.
My only question: What if I have a #85 Hernandez jersey from before he switched?
