Just when you thought the story surrounding Aaron Hernandez couldn't get any darker or more sinister Rolling Stone delivers some intriguing details surrounding the former New England Patriots player and his life leading up to his current incarceration. On Monday the magazine's official website published an article that serves as a tease for its new issue and the piece written by contributing editor Paul Solotaroff entitled "The Gangster in the Huddle" which centers on Hernandez's life and the people he surrounded himself with. Here is what the website asserts will be included in the upcoming piece. • Hernandez was a heavy user of angel dust and had become so paranoid over the last year that he carried a gun wherever he went. • He surrounded himself with a cohort of gangsters and cut himself off from his family and teammates. • Hernandez had so infuriated his head coach Bill Belichick with missed practices and thug-life stunts that he was one misstep from being cut. • Both his parents Dennis and Terri had criminal records as did much of his extended family. • Terri allegedly cheated on Dennis before his death with a violent drug dealer named Jeffrey Cummings then married Cummings after Dennis died and moved him into the house she shared with Aaron. • In college his coach (then-University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer) may have helped cover up failed drug tests along with two violent incidents — an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar. Rolling Stone states Solotaroff procured numerous interviews with the likes of "family friends high school teammates and NFL sources." There isn't just one thing that smacks you in the face. It's more like a giant wave of shocking details that if true would certainly serve to create a portrait of a star athlete who is now alleged to have murdered someone and gone to great lengths to cover it up. As CBS Sports' Will Brinson reports Hernandez was indicted on a charge of first-degree murder for the death of Odin Lloyd and he will be arraigned on September 6.
