Really? You'd allow a guy linked to a murder investigation to remain associated with you?

At what point do the respective teams have to step in early on in a player's career? And to what extent would players ever allow their respective teams putting in an element of control into their lives?

Considering the number of players who still manage to throw it all away, there's got to be a solution. Surely.

I guess his stance is "innocent until proven guilty" and the Pats should stand by their player until he is proven guilty. However obviously the Pats know something serious is going down if they released such a talented player. I think dissociating themselves with him at this point is the correct move. Whether it's classy or not... who cares. It's the right move.

What a waste.

Wonder if anyone picks him up on waivers??

Maybe the Patriots know more than we do, but this seems a little premature.

I get they want to nip this in the butt, but what if Hernandez gets off Ray Lewis style? I'm a firm believer in due process, and crazy things can happen in court. It's not impossible to imagine him not being charged.

I know, most likely, the Patriots know more about the case than the media, but it still seems premature to me.

You can never say the Patriots don't stick to their values, though, so props to them on that front.

Wouldn't they be on the hook for his contract if they did? Makes no sense.

Props to the Patriot Organization for being prompt and releasing him befor this situation could get worse. Seems like they know something we don't involving this case...


Completely agree. I applaud the Pats for taking care of this swiftly. Clearly they believe that this is more serious than an obstruction of justice charge, and you don't need the black cloud of a murder investigation hovering over your organization.

Well done.

Looks like the patriots forgot to put the all importnant clause in!

I wonder if there's any team out there that will take a chance on him, even with his recent troubles.

The Patriots couldn't let themselves appear supportive of Hernandez during a murder trial.

Perhaps it will become apparent once his charges are made public.

I suspect, as previously mentioned the Pats know a great deal more than has been made public. I doubt the situation is one where being classy is relevant.

Hernandez is likely to have his priorities elsewhere for the foreseeable future and the last thing the Patriots need is a distraction.
