Wow. Now, if the Pats could just reverse the draft or, rather, their evaluation of it.

I'm turning mine in and getting a Wes Welker jersey.

June 28, 2013  04:45 PM ET

Or maybe an orange jumpsuit.

Unheard of.

The Bills are probably still selling #32.

The Pats just upped the value of this collectible item. File this in the "Sad but True" folder.

Lame. Completely lame gesture.

Jerry Jones should do the same for Josh Brent jerseys.

I wouldn't want my kid wearing a Hernandez jersey, so for parents who plunked down that kind of money, it's kind of nice to be able to replace it.

I wouldn't wear one myself.

That's what I heard. His momma and, uh, his momma.

She's big, and had to stitch two of them together.

What's lame is your post, and pretty much everything you ever say. Do everyone a favor and be quiet.

It's a collectors' item!

In my neighborhood, they collect on Wednesdays.

Good one.

As for being a real collectors item... maybe if you have "blood" tattooed on you.

Hernandez is about to go somewhere where he is going to learn about the REAL thug life. A place where you don't live in a million dollar home and sleep in a nice bed every night.

He wants it, well, he gets it.
