There are two dominant guys named Aaron in the NFL right now. One, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was recently let go by his employer and is facing first-degree murder and other charges while also potentially being linked to a double-murder from 2012.
The other is Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, arguably the best in the NFL at what he does.
The Aaron’s are two very, very different individuals.
Unfortunately for Rodgers, he was accidentally named by ESPN as the guy involved involved in all of the alleged crimes:
As you can probably imagine, Rodgers was not too thrilled about the slip-up:

As you can also probably imagine, Hernandez was not available for comment on the issue.
Rodgers is facing an uphill battle next season as the man behind the Packers offense as the team looks to return to the Super Bowl. Hernandez is fighting an entirely different kind of battle and we have a feeling he won’t be on the football field in 2013.
It was a minor slip-up, but an entertaining one to say the least. Unless you’re Aaron Rodgers.
