The New England Patriots seemed set for years with their young, record-breaking tight end combination.
Aaron Hernandez ran around defenders after making catches. Rob Gronkowski ran over them. They were stars before they were 23.
It was one position coach Bill Belichick could rely on, but not anymore.
Hernandez was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder. He was released by the Patriots. Gronkowski is recovering from back surgery, his fifth operation since he broke his left forearm in November, and may not be ready for the start of the season.
One possibility at tight end might be Tim Tebow. The Patriots signed the quarterback on June 11 and he has the size and speed to play tight end. Belichick hasn't said what role Tebow will fill.

Aaron Hernandez is too damn sexy to be charged with anything.
People have forgotten about Alexander Bradley. He is the man who says he was shot in the face by Aaron Hernandez after a night out at the strip club.
One again, it is innocent until proven guilty, but maybe Hernandez was so sloppy with leaving evidence because he had shot people for years and got away with it. Bradley’s lawyer believes when Hernandez allegedly shot Bradley, it...
A.B. As you can see below, Aaron Hernandez’s NFL career stats are no longer listed on NFL.com.
At first glance I figured it was an error – maybe even a database or website issue with NFL.com. But after typing other random current NFL players in the search field, and their stats showing up, it seems Hernandez’s missing stats may be intentional.
Why the NFL would remove (if done...

First there was planking. Then came Tebowing. A weak attempt to get Griffining going didn't last. Kaepernicking came close to becoming the next big thing, but I don't think it quite made it. However, we may finally have the next craze; the next thing that everyone is going to be doing.

My names Aaron Hernandez and I’m here to say,
I’ve really run a foul of the Patriot way!
I smashed my cameras and my phone,
Then i had some spanish ladys come and clean my home!
