Either 1) they know something we don't, and are fairly certain of his guilt, or 2) Kraft stepped in and said he doesn't want to deal with this mess. I wonder which one it is.

The latter. If this was a assault case or marijuana charges were talking about something else. Serious those other charges are but were talking about murder. Kraft and Bill likely had the talk and both decided likely its best for both sides.

It's not like Aaron is going to have a huge market.

Lol we didn't no need for the harshness. It's always good to cover your ground when your two studs can't stay healthy.

Iím no expert, but Iím kinda thinking the Patriots might already know what the charges are against Hernandez based on this move Ö

NFL teams have security departments that are VERY connected to local authorities so Pats likely know more than we do

Great. Just great.

Was hoping this was all just a 'misunderstanding' and that everything would be fine as of September. Obviously not. Strange decision to undertake so quickly following his arrest. At least we can (sort of) follow the investigation and (maybe) trial) as neutrals instead of fans.

Disappointed is definitely the best word for it.

Forget the Madden curse, I thibk there might be a "Tebow Curse".

Goes to Denver- McDaniels fired
Goes to Jets- Tennenbaum gone
Comes to NE- Hernandez Arrested and released

That's a stretch. Especially the Jets one...
