It's been a tough offseason for tight ends of the New England Patriots. The latest situation involves fourth-year player Aaron Hernandez, who was questioned by police Tuesday in relation to a homicide investigation, according to a report by Sports Illustrated.
A source told Sports Illustrated that Hernandez is not a suspect. However, police are investigating a SUV rented in Hernandez’s name that might have a connection to the body found of a 27-year-old man earlier this week in North Attleboro, Mass.
It’s too early to speculate exactly what this means for Hernandez. But this is yet another dose of bad news for New England’s talented duo of tight ends. Hernandez being questioned by police happened on the same day that teammate Rob Gronkowski just completed back surgery -- his fifth surgery since last November.
