The New England Patriots have a message for fans who bought an Aaron Hernandez Jersey that they no longer want. The message is clear, we understand why you no want to wear that jersey in public.
Hernandez is being held without bail in the Bristol county jail on
murder and weapons charges in the homicide of Odin Lloyd. The
team released Hernandez less than two hours after his arrest.
The Patriots offer is for fans who bought a #81 Hernandez jersey at the
Patriots Pro Shop or online at the team's Pro Shop. Fans may exchange
their Hernandez jersey for a new jersey of any other player
as long as it's of comparable value.
"We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys, but may not
understand why parents don't want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys
anymore," said New England Patriots spokesperson Stacey James. "We hope
this opportunity to exchange those jerseys at the Patriots ProShop for
another player's jersey will be well received by parents."
The offer is valid the weekend of July 6-7 and must be made at the
Patriots ProShop at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
