The news of Aaron Hernandez's shocking suicide Wednesday is hitting the NFL community — and beyond — hard.
Here's how several former and current NFL players, as well as Twitter, are reacting to the former New England Patriots tight end taking his own life in a prison hanging this morning.
The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver speaks for all of us while reacting to the shocking news.
Cromartie is right. The timing of Hernandez's suicide couldn't have been odder considering he was just found not guilty last Thursday of a double murder and was expecting to appeal and overturn his 2015 conviction for the murder of Odin Lloyd, for which he was serving a separate life sentence without the possibility of parole.
People will bring up conspiracy theories about everything, we guess.
Interesting take from the Buffalo Bills rusher.
The Atlanta Falcons linebacker was just stunned.
The former NFL running back is referring to the $40 million contract that Hernandez inked with the New England Patriots back in 2012.
So soon? Damn, that's not right.
We feel for the little one as well. She lost her dad to a life sentence in prison and then lost him, period.
It's crazy how this story wound up.
