Tim Tebow and Tom Brady worried about Aaron Hernandez's behavior as early as 2011, with Hernandez being described as "a lot to handle," a newly surfaced video shows. Brady: “And I’m trying to watch over Aaron and Brandon.” Tebow: “I appreciate that, too, man. They’re good guys.” Brady: “[Yeah] they’re a lot to handle.” Read more at: http://nesn.com/2013/07/tom-brady-told-tim-tebow-he-was-watching-over-aaron-hernandez-in-2012-called-him-lot-to-handle/ Tebow and Brady are shown talking about Hernandez -- as well as former Florida Gator Brandon Spikes -- in the long-forgotten video from NFL Films. “...I’m trying to watch over Aaron and Brandon,” Brady tells Tebow. “I appreciate that, too, man. They’re good guys,” Tebow responds. “[Yeah] they’re a lot to handle,” Brady says. The video is from Dec. 18, 2011, in Denver -- Week 15 of the NFL season, when Brady's New England Patriots defeated the Tebow-led Denver Broncos 41-23. The NFL Films video includes game highlights as well as Tebow and Brady shaking hands after the game and talking briefly about Hernandez. The video shows that the two quarterbacks are very friendly, and it's apparent they have had contact with each other off the field. And some of that contact has been to talk about Hernandez and Spikes, a linebacker for the Patriots. Other tidbits from the video. It opens with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell embracing Tebow on the Broncos' sideline, encouraging the QB and asking about former Gators coach Urban Meyer. "He's looking forward to running Ohio State," Tebow says. Tebow, of course, answers most of the commissioner's questions with a very polite "yes, sir." After some highlights of the game, the video then switches to Tebow and Brady meeting at midfield for their post-game handshake. The sound quality is amazingly clear as Brady encourages Tebow before the conversation turns to Hernandez and Spikes.
