    Utterly moronic to take a chance on a character guy. Oh, wait:

    Yeah, in hindsight, very bad for the pats*, but from a pure football sense, even for a few seasons, they got more out of a fourth rounder then most do.

    If they go back looking into past open cases, could Pouncey end up implicated along with AH in some way?

    Either way, it could mean Pouncey hangs with the wrong crowd as well. His brother Rainey has some off field problems as well.
    Ugh...

    Mike Brown: Bengals wary of Hernandez’s character, Gronk’s back
    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 1, 2013, 7:26 PM EDT

    In the first round of the 2010 NFL draft, the Bengals selected tight end Jermaine Gresham. In the second round of that draft, the Patriots drafted tight end Rob Gronkowski. And in the fourth round of that draft, the Patriots drafted tight end Aaron Hernandez.

    Obviously, no one could have imagined that Hernandez would become a murder suspect, but Bengals owner Mike Brown told Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com that Hernandez’s character was the reason the Bengals didn’t want him.

    “That one is no secret. We just stayed away from it,” Brown said about Hernandez. “We didn’t question the playing ability. But we went for Gresham.”

    Brown also said the Bengals removed Gronkowski from their draft board “because he had a bad back.” Gronkowski is currently recovering from back surgery.

    The Bengals are feeling pretty good about the decision to go with Gresham now.

    Actually, I can see it.
    Lesson learned from past mistakes.

    AH was an absolute beast in college... by FAR the most productive guy, fastest guy by a mile.
    EVERY TEAM interested in a tight end can rightfully claim they did not take him because of character issues.

    Gronk JUST CAME OFF his back surgery so the concern was legit.

    Gresham was "safe" but in no way spectacular.

    And can you imagine the criticism he has received over the years for NOT taking Gronk or AH over the years? (Add Jimmy Graham, also in that class).

    Given that context one can see why NOW he want to shout "THAT is why we didnt that those guys".
    FINALLY an little findication!!!

    HOF removes Aaron Hernandez pic

    Updated: July 14, 2013
    ESPN.com news services

    The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, has removed a photo of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez after receiving complaints about it, an official from the museum told The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer.

    "In the spirit of good taste we thought we'd take it down," Joe Horrigan, vice president of communication and exhibits for the hall, told the newspaper.

    The photo, which depicts Hernandez high-stepping into the end zone for the Patriots against the Green Bay Packers in 2010, was the winning entry that year in the Hall of Fame's annual photo contest.

    Hernandez is charged with the execution-style murder of 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd and is being held without bail. He has pleaded not guilty. The Patriots released the tight end last month after he was arrested.
