Meyer declines to discuss Hernandez
By Field Yates
Addressing the media at his annual football camp in Ohio, current Ohio State coach and former University of Florida coach Urban Meyer was asked about Aaron Hernandez, the former Patriots tight end whom he coached during his time at Florida.
Meyer opted to remain mum on the topic, saying, "I'm not going to talk about that," according to Ben Axelrod of Rivals.com.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Meyer have developed a friendship, and Hernandez was one of several Florida players who played for Meyer that went on to play for the Patriots.
Another former Gator, Tim Tebow, was the topic of a question for Meyer, as a reporter inquired about the Patriots possibly using Tebow at tight end. Meyer said that he talks to Tebow weekly, but is unsure if he'll be used at tight end, adding "I don't doubt Tim can do anything."
