The Patriots are really going hard in the paint to eliminate Hernandez from their history. I think the messages was received loud and clear when they released and wiped away any trace of him, but just in case that wasn’t enough, now we have this.

I am not sure if they are feeling guilty or this is just a PR move, but they are going the extra mile to wash their hands of someone they embraced not too long ago.
Maybe, it is there way of trying to convince the public they had no knowledge that Hernandez was a goon. Whatever the case, I would definitely take advantage of it, if you don’t want to be walking around Boston with a Hernandez jersey on.
