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.
