Albert Breer of the Boston Globe reports that Hernandez failed “multiple” drug tests for marijuana use at Florida. He reportedly admitted to the failed tests at the Scouting Combine. Hernandez passed the test given in Indianapolis.
“These kids, they don’t get it,” an AFC personnel director told the
Globe. “[Hernandez] cost himself a lot of money.”
Despite the issues, everyone that talked to the Globe said Hernandez was a tremendous value where he was drafted. But the failed tests scared teams away.
“He’s not a bad kid. He just has an issue,” one executive said.
Hernandez won’t be enrolled in the league’s substance abuse
program, but he could be subject to extra testing.
