The New England Patriots will take the football field for the first time in training camp on Friday. However, questions off the field remain on how the reigning AFC East champs will overcome the major loss and controversy involving former tight end Aaron Hernandez.
New England cut Hernandez after he was arrested and charged with murder and five additional gun charges. Although innocence or guilt has yet to be determined, Hernandez’s arrest brought a ton of negative attention to a Patriots team that often avoids distractions.
