Hernandez charged with murder, released by Patriots. What are fans doing with his Jerseys?
This was open last night and bidding ended today on this Jersey
(CNN) - The New England Patriots are offering exchanges on some Aaron Hernandez jerseys.
The team says it will exchange a No. 81 jersey for one of comparable value if it was bought from the pro shop at Gillette Stadium or the official Patriot's website, patriotsproshop.com.The exchange will be held July 6-7 only.
The Patriots fired Hernandez earlier this week after he was charged in the murder of an acquaintance.
"We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys, but may not understand why parents don't want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys anymore," said Patriots spokesperson Stacey James. "We hope this opportunity to exchange those jerseys at the Patriots ProShop for another player's jersey will be well received by parents."
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty
