New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is currently being investigated by police in a homicide probe after a car rented in his name turned up related to a dead body describe as an associate of Hernandez’s.
At this time Hernandez is not considered a suspect or anything of that nature, although it does sound as if police are gathering the materials for a search warrant of the star tight end’s home.
Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk has put together a nice summary of the events so far:
The situation, which is extremely fluid, already has spawned inconsistent accounts. For example, SIreports that Hernandez has been questioned, while ABC reports that investigators plan to interview him. Likewise, SI reports that police may seek to search Hernandez’s home; ABC reports that police are indeed seeking a search warrant.
Per ABC, Hernandez has been “uncooperative.”
As Florio said, the situation is very fluid at this time with more details undoubtedly coming in the near future. While we anxiously await more bits of news from the story, let’s take a moment to see how the world of Twitter is reacting to the news.

Please let this all end with a bearded Aaron Hernandez running from the FBI after being framed by Tim Tebow.

Not sure how "murder probe" typically affects a player's ADP, but uhh, maybe hold off on Aaron Hernandez for now….

Bill Belichick will look like a prophet if Tebow can play for Aaron Hernandez
