03:15 PM ET 06.26 | Aaron Hernandez was officially charged with the murder of 27-year-old associate Odin Lloyd. He also faces five gun charges related to the case. Hernandez pleaded not guilty to all charges. Hernandez was released by the Patriots hours after his arrest Wednesday morning, more than week after authorities began investigating his involvement in Lloyd's murder.

Well with Aaron along with Rae Carruth and Dave Meggett The Cons will have a pretty good offense

Nothing like a murder charge to get Hernandez to flip on his two homeboys who were with him that night.

Indeed. Only 23 years old too.

From a football perspective, what will the Pats do? Hernandez is gone, Gronk is busted up, and Welker is out the door. I don't think Amendola is the answer. Brady is a great QB, but he certainly doesn't have much of a group to work with right now.

Between Vereen, Ridley, and Blount, they at least have a sound running game. Time to go ground and pound.

That could work the other way around too.

I am shock that you did not say the DETROIT LIONS. By the way just one more gang banger that just could not gave up his old ways of being a gang banger.

Except he's the only one who's been arrested so far. The other two have not been identified and all the evidence they have so far, circumstantial as it may be, is plenty for prosecutors to put all the pressure on him. He's got the most to lose so if he wasn't the trigger man he better start singing.

I'm going on the assumption that he may have been the trigger man. Maybe his associates will cooperate with the authorities now that Hernandez is behind bars. i

What a shockingly stupid human being. Had it all and it wasn't enough.

There's a big problem tho. The prosecutors don't have the murder weapon in evidence and there are no witnesses. If Hernandez and his friends point the fingers at each other, then all you've got is a circumstantial case with a crapton of reasonable doubt.

He didn't have a heckuva lot receivers in winning 3 SBs outside of Branch, and he's not exactly HOF material. Notice he had All-pros in losing 2.

They were showing his phone and text records, same for the victims. The victim was texting his sister that "did she see who he was with?" and naming him in the next text literally 45 seconds before or so before local workers heard the gunshots. Hernandez was seen on his own security leaving his home with a gun. They don't need the murder weapon if they can paint a pretty enough picture for the jury, which isn't hard this time. They will put the screws to his boys now, and whether or not they flip is a moot point, hernandez will go to jail.

Who reported that? The last I read was that there was 8 hours of footage missing from his home surveillance.

Prosecutor read it out in front of the judge. Laid it out in pretty vivid detail where no juror would ever vote not guilty, even without the weapon. NE was smart as hell to cut him this morning.
