10:53 AM ET 06.22 | No arrest warrant has been issued for Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez as of early Friday afternoon, but the NFL star has lost some financial support. Cytosport Inc., the company that makes Muscle Milk, has terminated its sponsor relationship with Hernandez. The tight end was wearing a black winter hat with "Muscle Milk" emblazoned on it when he visited Gillette Stadium and drove around the Greater Boston area on Thursday. "In light of the investigation involving Aaron Hernandez, CytoSport is terminating its endorsement contract with Mr. Hernandez, effective immediately," CytoSport said in a statement.

Maybe he could hook up with Paula Deen... another personality who is in need of some PR "polishing".

Conversation in the near future: "Aaron, meet Rae. Rae, this is Aaron. Get to know each other. You'll be spending a lot if time together in a confined space."

Paula confessed to using an inappropriate word. AH apparently is accused of destroying potentially important evidence in a gang-style murder case. AH needs more than PR polish if the allegations are true.

Judging from the "Paula Deen Joke Series" on Twitter - I think you underestimate.

I don't care, I watch that old large lady cooking and I get wood.

Yes, Paula Deen made some comments that were commonplace in the 60's in the South, which is when and where she made them - I can see where you'd lump her in with a murderer........................really Otis, you're MUCH better than that.

Funny I watch her and feel like I need an angioplasty as it seems like EVERY recipe of hers calls for a 1/2 lb of butter................people need to leave this sweet ol' lady alone, she apologized emphatically, where's this liberal tolerance I've heard soooooo much about?

Tolerance and forgiveness doesn't apply to whites with southern accents.

Apparently I'm not.

Hernandez didnt kill him...Creepy Face did......I shot the sheriff but I didnt shoot the deputy!!!

It won't be much longer before the headline reads "Pats" in place of "Sponsor".

Under most circumstances, the arrest would have been made on day one. But the DA can anticipate a well funded OJ like defense and law enforcement has been meticulous.

June 22, 2013  03:25 PM ET

A few years from now, the topic on this very site will be whether he can regain his NFL skill level after time in prison.

June 22, 2013  03:31 PM ET

I think New England can replace Hernandez easily.

It's not like he was putting up monstrous numbers. Catching passes from Tom Brady would help anyone's stat line (except OchoStinko)

What a waste of talent. This thug's career in the NFL is over. He is obviously guilty of something major and is going to be is the clink for quite some time.
