The Aaron Hernandez murder investigation is having an effect on everyone who’s ever known the young man. Former teammates now say he was a great friend.
NFL brass and execs now wonder how he slipped under the radar, or why his background wasn’t more closely scrutinized.
Many people are interested in hearing what his former college coach has to say. Meyer reportedly would sit and read bible scriptures on the daily with Hernandez while he was at Florida.
Ben Axelrod of BuckeyeGrove.com, reportedly asked Meyer for a comment on his former star tight end. According to Axelrod, Meyer refused to comment.
Urban Meyer when asked for his thoughts on the Aaron Hernandez situation: "I'm not going to talk about that."

It will definitely be interesting to see what kind of relationship Meyer and Patriots head coach Bill Belichich have going forward.
Meyer of course vouched for Hernandez, and signed off on the tight end for the Patriots.
