Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez questioned by police as part of possible murder investigation
Massachusetts State Police questioned Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and searched his house Tuesday night in connection with the investigation of a possible homicide. Hernandez is not believed to be a suspect in the investigation into the death of a 27-year-old man who was found less than a mile away from Hernandez's home in North Attleboro on Monday. But a vehicle rented in his name has emerged as a key piece of evidence, according to Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel and Greg Bedard.
This shouldn't impact Hernandez's fantasy stock. He is currently working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery and should be fine in time for training camp. He carries his own injury risks but at this point, I would draft Hernandez before taking a chance on teammate and fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski.
