Aaron Hernandez Threatened Wes Welker

Evidence against New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez continues to pile up, as does evidence that he has proven in the past to simply be a poor character.

The latest report comes courtesy of  Shalise Manza Young at The Boston Globewho reports Hernandez allegedly verbally attacked Welker just days after the tight end joined the team:

It didn’t take long for Hernandez’s quick temper to be revealed at Gillette Stadium. According to an NFL source, within days of being drafted, Hernandez was at the team facility trying to watch film.

When he couldn’t figure out how to use the equipment, he asked how it worked, but got no answer. When Wes Welker walked by the room, Hernandez asked for his help, but Welker said, “Rookie, you figure it out.”

Hernandez responded with expletives.

Hernandez spends little, if any, time with his Patriots teammates off the field, opting to spend his time with those same friends who used to visit him in Gainesville and have known him for years.

Manza Young expanded on exactly what Hernandez told Welker via Twitter, and it isn’t pretty:

 

 

Think about this for a moment. This is a rookie fresh off of being drafted coming into the highly respected Patriots organization and immediately threatening to harm one of the most respected names in the locker room, not to mention in the city of Boston itself. Even said in a joking manner, which it doesn’t appear was done, this was a bad, bad even for Hernandez.

Over a harmless joke about a piece of film equipment.

The curtain continues to be pulled back on Hernandez as a murder investigation enshrouds his life, and so far what we’re seeing isn’t very encouraging.

    WOW!…..digging deep for anything now. Wes was giving the rookie a dig and Hernandez was frustrated with the film equipment. I believe that was the extent of the encounter……let’s not make it out to be more than just that…..

    And you wonder why Wes left after giving all that money to a nut job like Hernandez.

    Pats signed Tebow on June 11th – Florida shooting law suit against Hernandaz was filed on June 13th – think the Pats knew about the shooting / suit – I do! Plax got suspended for shooting himself, so they had to know they were going to lose Hernandez to suspension at the least (or jail time).
