Aaron Hernandez blocked from watching NFL in jail


Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was sitting in jail for the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd on Sunday when the 2013-14 NFL regular season was in full swing. While Hernandez should have been on the field to help lead his team against the Buffalo Bills, his poor decisions landed him behind bars.

Now, the one-time promising young tight end cannot even lay eyes on any live action as he is unable to watch the NFL in jail.

“While Mr. Hernandez and many other inmates would like to watch football, it is just not part of our policy here … so that will not be happening,” Sheriff Hodgson of the Bristol County Jail told TMZ.com.

That really comes as no surprise, but you really have to wonder what is going through Hernandez’s mind while he sits in his cell and wonders about what he could be doing in his second life had he not been involved in multiple murder investigations.

The good news for Hernandez is that he gets visits from time to time, so someone can update him with scores. Of course, since he’s not involved after selfish decisions, he may not even care what is going on.
