PFT on NBCSN: All the latest on Aaron Hernandez


One story is dominating the NFL on Wednesday and that story is going to be our focus for the entire hour of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.

Aaron Hernandez was arrested at his home on Wednesday morning and arraigned on a murder charge in North Attleboro, Massachusetts in the afternoon for his role in the killing of Odin Lloyd. Hernandez is being held in prison without bail pending the next round of developments in a case that is sure to continue to be a big story in the days, weeks and months to come.

In between his arrest and arraignment, Hernandez was released by the Patriots and his once-bright professional career has dimmed to total darkness. We’ll be discussing all aspects of Hernandez’s arrest over the course of the hour on Wednesday afternoon, although we’ll probably need a bit more than an hour to touch on everything there is to talk about a day like few others in the history of the league.

It all gets started at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

  1. in hindsight the Pats were probably the worst team that could have drafted Hernandez if he grew up in Conn. seems like the kid needed to get away from home, not surrounded by it. not to say that he wouldn’t have gotten into trouble had he gone somewhere else, but being in NE sure had to make it a lot easier to stay in contact with all his bad influences.

    Newsflash to media: this case is not the next OJ. Quit trying to make this the next OJ.


    It’s not the same, your right, imagine if social media had been around back then. In either case, it’s still murder coupled with blatant attempts to obstruct justice.


  4. I was surprised, and guess I shouldn’t have been, that Hernandez seemed very disconnected in the courtroom….like let’s get this over with. Did he seem like that to anyone else?

    I’m sorry for the Patriots team that this happened. Really, it could have been any of the other 31 teams. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t root for the Pats.

    It’s terribly sad when you look at this from the victim’s family’s view. They lost their son, brother, etc to someone who was supposed to be his friend but shot him and left him to die in some weeds, like an animal that had been hit by a car.

    I don’t mean to compliment Florio but he does a good job on TV. I remember when he got all dressed up in his suit to record his PFT when there were on 20 of us watching and reading. 😉

  5. There is hope.

    Just look at Rae Carruth who is 39 and planning his comeback.

    if he cannot get back into the NFL., Rae will be speaking at urban high schools and annually at the rookie symposium as a motivational speaker. He has a wonderful career ahead with his “street cred.”

    Expect him to be speaking to women’s groups all around the country on their issues and how to use a vehicle trunk as a meditation chamber.

    Look for Hernandez to do in similar fashion right a book on making and keeping friends, how the 2nd amendment ruined his life, and the intricacies of “keeping it real.”
