The reaction to Aaron Hernandez arrest and murder charge, as the former Patriots tight end remains in jail, has been, understandably, outrage.
But some of it's just insanely over the top, like the notion that the NFL might ban academically ineligible players from the combine. Or that the NFL might have "police experts" check prospects tattoos, which CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman hears is a possibility.
There's some logic here. If a prospect has gang-related tattoos on his body, finding out about those would be an important thing for a team interested in selecting said prospect. Gang activity isn't a good thing for the old résumé.
But at the same time, there's a little bit of awkward -- and potentially questionable? -- profiling here. It's like saying that only people who have tattoos are potentially guilty of taking part in gang activity.

AARON HERNANDEZ SAGA
More details about Aaron Hernandez's sordid past have come to light, including a disturbing story about his mother from his rookie year in New England.
In a period of time when the Patriots would rather forget that they ever knew Aaron Hernandez, more details have emerged this morning that show an even more violent life then had been originally thought. These details state that Hernandez's mother had been stabbed by his stepfather after Hernandez had been drafted by the New England Patriots.

Seems like every other day another murder case gets linked back to Hernandez.
Hernandez is due back in court on Wednesday for his involvement in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd. In addition to that, Hernandez is being looked at by prosecutors for his connection to a double homicide in Boston in 2o12.

According to The Boston Globe , prosecutors have begun presenting evidence to a Suffolk County grand jury apparently tying the...
It looks like USA Today didn't hear the news. According to a tweet by ESPN's Adam Schefter, the newspaper's NFL 2013 preview issue still wasn't aware about the stories out of Boston concerning accused murderer Aaron Hernandez when they went to press last week.
Maybe with all of the excitement about Tim Tebow coming to town and everything — the story got lost...
Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is due to
make another court appearance in the murder case against him.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says he has simply “moved on” when asked for his reaction to the murder charge against his former tight end Aaron Henandez. “I’ve seen a lot of things over 13 years, and what I have learned is that mental toughness and putting aside personal agendas for what’s in the best interest of the team matters most,” Brady
'DISAPPOINTED AND HURT'
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick addressed the tragic situation involving Aaron Hernandez, saying, "It certainly goes way beyond being a football issue. This is real life."
Tomorrow Bill Belichick is scheduled to speak with reporters for the first time since former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was arrested on murder charges. As a Patriots fan I’m bracing myself to see how many times reporters will badger Coach Belichick to comment about the issue. We all know that Bill isn’t going to make a comment, so what is the sense in asking him...

There were many folks around the NFL and football circles in general that wondered what Bill Belichick would say about Aaron Hernandez in today’s press conference. Some speculated that the timing of the event suggested that Belichick would give us more than he usually does at such events. Those people, as it turned out, weren’t entirely wrong, but Bill Belichick certainly didn’t...

BY NICK ST. DENISEven before Aaron Hernandez was arrested for murder and while Rob Gronkowski was in the midst of recovering from his fourth surgery in less than a year, Jake Ballard was a potential impact player for the New England Patriots' tight end-friendly offense.After being signed by the Patriots last year, the former New York Giant spent all of last season recovering...
The 42nd annual Big Ten Media Days kicked off today in Chicago. Today was filled with press conferences that provided glimpses on the outlook for each team. By far, the most anticipated press conference of the day came from Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer. I’m sure Meyer was hoping to get questions mostly about the 2013 Ohio State Buckeyes – but that turned into questions about...
Has anyone else used that god-awful headline yet?
Sometimes I’m envious of the sports-radio host mentality. It must just be so awesome to sit in judgment, move goalposts and criticize an outcome no matter which way it goes.
I loved Felger yesterday attempting to make the point that since all the Belichick toadies said he shouldn’t talk, that they should now be pissed at him because...
