ESPNBoston.com's Mike Rodak writes that Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who possessed No. 85, could have held out for the best offer from Chad Ochocinco. Instead, Hernandez let his No. 85 jersey pass to the former Bengals receiver for free.
Ochocinco considered the gesture Hernandez's way of welcoming him.
"I just shook his hand and said, 'Thank you.' I was probably going to give Mr. Hernandez -- I drive a Toyota Prius -- so I was going to let him use the Prius on the weekend. That's the best I can do right now, and I have some leftover McDonald's coupons."
