Patriots release Aaron Hernandez

According to ESPN, the New England Patriots have released Tight End Aaron Hernandez.  This comes just a couple of hours after Hernandez was arrested at his home.  Hernandez has been brought into custody, but the charges have not been released to the public.  They are expected to be released when he appears in court today.

Hernandez has been a suspect in the murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player.  Police have searched Hernandez's home twice, after Lloyd's body was found near Hernandez's home.  As of right now, it is uncertain whether Hernandez has been arrested for murder, obstruction of justice, or something else.

Hernandez has been in trouble in the past, including failed drug tests at the NFL Combine.  By releasing Hernandez, the Patriots illustrate that they will not put up with any misconduct.  Much like the police, the Patriots have kept quiet about the investigation.

Unfortunately for Hernandez, it does not look like the day will be getting any better for him.

Here is some footage of the arrest:
