Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Monday that if the charges against Hernandez are true, his organization has been "duped." The Patriots last year signed Hernandez to a five-year contract worth $40 million but released him the day of his arrest.
"If this stuff is true, then I've been duped and our whole organization
has been duped," Kraft said in a session with reporters from The Boston
Globe, The Boston Herald and ESPNBoston.com. "When he was in our
building, we never saw anything where he was not polite. He was always
respectful to me. We only know what's going on inside the building. We
don't put private eyes on people."
Kraft also said the Patriots will "be looking at our procedures and
auditing how we do things" with regard to character reviews.
