07:01 AM ET 07.15 | Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez isn't without his supporters. Photographs of Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey wearing ballcaps that say "Free Hernandez" began circulating on the Internet on Sunday. The photos, seen in multiple angles, do not appear to be digitally altered. ... The Steelers are not commenting on the photos, but according to a source they plan to talk to Maurkice Pouncey about the photos. A source close to Mike Pouncey expects the Dolphins to have a similar talk with the team's starting center. Hernandez is charged with the execution-style murder of 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd and is being held without bail.

Maybe they offering a free Hernandez when you purchase the first Hernandez at it's regular price.

Low end of the gene pool in that family.

Suspend Pouncey for the season.

How smart do they have to be to play football?

Maybe they can get some gardening and groundskeeping jobs. The media up here are reporting that, due to lack of water, the lawn at Chez Hernandez is going brown.

This has gotten ridiculous. Ether you accept our way of thinking or else. Who knows, maybe LLoyd did something really hideous to bring this about. Maybe they were playing Russian Roulette. Maybe the driver slammed on the brakes and the guy in the back seat accidentally shot him. Maybe he "choirboyed" Aaron's little cousin or slapped his momma. Even thugs don't "generally" kill each other without some reason. At least let it get to court before you hang Hernandez.

The story up here involves an unsolved double murder that happened last year. Seems there were two Cape Verdean guys who left a club in Boston and were gunned down on the street from an SUV with Rhode Island plates that was never found. Well, they found the car - in Bristol, Connecticut where the two other guys in the Hernandez case lived.

The suspicion is that Odin Lloyd knew Hernandez was involved in that killing, and was either talking to much about it or talking to the wrong people about it.

They do if one of them is chirping a little too much to the wrong people.

Who really cares about this anyway? They complain about a "Free Hernandez" hat when they let these NBA players wear those rediculous after-game suits and hats?

Being that they are twins just compounds the stupidity of their actions.

In this Country you have the right to say and do stupid things. Things like this are a small price to pay for that right. This too shall pass, stupid has no end.

Censorship at its finest. Gotta love the people in power who feel its their job to tell you what to do in all facets of life.

There is no substitute for intelligence; dumb goes all the way to the bones!
