NFL Setting Restrictions For Talks With Aaron Hernandez
Posted: 28 June, 2013
NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL is telling its teams that any contract with Aaron Hernandez before charges against him are resolved won't be approved without a hearing by commissioner Roger Goodell. The league says the hearing would be to decide if the former New England Patriots tight end should be suspended or face other action before a resolution of the charges is reached. Hernandez was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder and weapons counts in the shooting death of a friend, Odin Lloyd. Hernandez was cut by the Patriots after the arrest and before his court appearance and is being held without bail.
