Aaron Hernandez Suspended Three Games Following Murder Conviction

Recommended Posts

The NFL has weighed in on the fate of Aaron Hernandez.

NFL Media Insider Jeremy Jones reported late Friday evening that the New England Patriots tight end will be suspended for the first three games of the regular season and will be fined $10,000 under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.  The move is consistent with similar suspensions levied by the league in the past.


The ban comes in response to an April 15th verdict finding Hernandez guilty of first-degree murder, as well as five weapon charges, in the shooting death of his friend, Odin Lloyd.  For reasons not made clear during the trial,  Lloyd was shot six times in the middle of the night on June 17, 2013 in a deserted industrial park near Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough.

Hernandez is still awaiting two separate murder charges for the 2012 double homicide of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Hernandez was drafted by the Patriots in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft after a successful college career at the University of Florida.  Hernandez played with the Patriots just three seasons before ruining his once blossoming career and forfeiting the remaining of his five year $40 million contract.

National Report has received no response from the office of NFL Commissioner Roger Gooddell as of presstime.
