Wow! One of the top TE's in the game has been released this early in his legal proceedings. I applaud the Patriots organization.

...how do you ALWAYS do it Billy?! On the ball, major props and I get the feeling this situation is about to get REALLY serious. Props to the Patriots for sticking to their mantra and keeping their locker room clean.

I think this means he was charged with a little more than obstruction of justice.

Little premature I believe. The evidence doesn't look great but if for some reason he gets probation and wasn't the murderer I believe that's a poor release.

Here's to hoping he's in the FA pool when Madden 25 releases.

Imagine if he's announced not guilty. Crazy.

Can't wait to see where he ends up.

Patriots probably know more than we do and will probably mean that Hernandez is in more trouble that originally thought.

Disagree. Pats and nfl know more about the situations then we do. It must not being any positive information coming for Hernandez.

The fanbases of the Pats and Ravens have had their differences, but the Pats organization is pure class. Props to them.
