06:17 PM ET 06.25 | Q. Hey Mike, if Aaron Hernandez is not charged with the homicide, do you expect the Patriots to release him anyway? -- Ramin (San Marcos, Texas) A. Ramin, I think we need all the information about Hernandez's involvement before we can answer that. At the least, it appears he's guilty of drawing negative attention to himself, the Patriots and the NFL; that, in and of itself, could lead to some action from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. I don't know this for certain, but I would imagine the Patriots feel a bit betrayed by Hernandez after they made a big financial commitment to him just 10 months ago. If that's the case, it wouldn't surprise me if ties are cut.

Congrats ESPN on an article that says nothing, no facts at all. Well done.

WE shall see. TBA, but to think the Patriots are any different than the other 31 teams is fantasy. they have had their share of "character" issue guys, as with all teams, it comes down to does the play on the field justify the problems a player brings with him....

Exactly. Nothing trumps a player they think might help them win a Super Bowl.

If there are no charges filed when this is said and done, Kraft, Choirboy and the Hoodie better learn how to kiss some serious tukus fast. I'd be tickled to see Aaron and a plethora of scumbag lawyers with controlling interest in the Pats and a chunk of the league office.

They are having a hard time coming up with any physical evidence. In the beginning there was a swell of circumstantial, it was assumed the physical would follow. It looks like that is developing pretty slowly.

The dragging will put the Pats behind the 8 ball as they get ready for camp if there isn't an arrest.

Let's all take notice that nothing is being said by the Pats.
The smart thing to do. Until more facts are known why say something stupid?

The Patriots feel betrayed?How about the murder victim?

I guess ,he's gonna be another "Jimmy Hoffa" in this investigation.

Only they got the body? [of the victim] someone has too go.

Out of the 3 guys? Who has the most too lose?

You're blaming ESPN for FN copying and pasting a question in an online Q&A? Weird.

June 25, 2013  10:38 PM ET

I don't know why FN even bothers with clipping stories like these.

All they need to do is ....... Pats/Hernandez, discuss.

It's not like he's Paula Deen...

June 26, 2013  06:42 AM ET

Yeah, you know what you're talking about. How 'bout them Cowboys? How 'bout that one playoff win since what, 1997.Maybe you and King Jerry should wake up and realize that Dallas was never "America's Team" except in that backward-thinking state of yours and the Dust Bowl (who follow because they've got nothing/nowhere else to go. If you're America's team, we're all in deep trouble. Worry 'bout making the playoffs, Doofus, but remember, you'll be home watching the Pats on TV in January. Mediocre is alive and well in Dallas!

Perhaps, but the Patriots seem more confident than most that they can make do without. Randy Moss had proved he could help the Patriots win, but when he started to be a headache, they cut him free.

They knew he was a time bomb when they picked him.

Remember after the AFC championship game when numerous Pats fans took to twitter and taunted Torrey Smith about the death of his brother? Certainly this had to be a small minority of Pats fans, right? But karma is turning out to be a real non-discriminating bioch.
