Executive summary: Former Patriots Tight End, accused murderer
4th round draft pick in 2010, being the 113th pick overall. Most NFL General Managers considered him a problem waiting to happen, or he would have been picked much sooner. Hernandez was fired by the Patriots immediately after his arrest for murder, without waiting for Roger Goodell to suspend him for personal conduct violations. This move, intended to get him off the team roster as quickly as possible, cost the Patriots millions of dollars -- they will likely file a civil lawsuit against him.
 Hernandez said of owner Robert Kraft, now much more interesting in retrospect: "He didn't need to give me the amount that he gave me, and knowing that he thinks I deserve that, he trusts me to make the right decisions, it means a lot. It means he trusts my character, and the person I am, which means a lot... I have a lot more to give back, and all I can do is play my heart out for them, make the right decisions, and live life as a Patriot."
