There are a lot of New England Patriots fans who read this blog. So it’s a good time to offer this public reminder: The Patriots will offer their Aaron Hernandez jersey swap on Saturday and Sunday at the team’s pro shop at Gillette Stadium.
We wrote about this last week when New England first announced the decision. Hernandez recently was arrested and charged with murder and faces five additional gun charges in Massachusetts. The Patriots promptly cut the tight end.
The jersey swap is a classy move by the Patriots to allow their fans to trade in Hernandez jerseys for any jersey of equal value. It’s also a smart move by New England, because it’s another way to further distance itself and prevent fans from wearing Hernandez jerseys to the stadium this upcoming season.
