NFL: Pro Football Hall of Fame Removes Aaron Hernandez Photo

Jul 14 2013, 8:03pm CDT | by

The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio removed a photo featuring embattled former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Aaron Hernandez is no longer in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

No, Aaron Hernandez was never enshrined into the hall, but his picture will no longer be there. The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Tom Reed reported on July 13 that the Hall of Fame took down a photo of Hernandez after several visitors complained about it still being there. 

The 2010 photo shows Hernandez celebrating in the end zone after he scored a touchdown while the Green Bay Packers' Sam Shields lies slumped on the field behind him. According to CSN New England, the photo emerged as winner of the hall's 43rd annual photography contest

Joe Horrigan, the hall's vice president of communication and exhibits, thought it was best to do away with the photo. He said, "In the spirit of good taste we thought we'd take it down."

This is the latest football-related development which sought to disassociate itself from Hernandez. The New England Patriots, Hernandez's former team, exchanged his jerseys which fans bought for other jerseys last week. He also lost endrosements from sports nutrition company Cytosport and athletic gear manufacturer Puma. 

On June 26, Hernandez was charged with murder and was ordered to be held without bail. He is tied to the killing of 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who reportedly dated the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

Rob Gronkowski already has nine receptions, 149 yards and three touchdowns early in the second half against the Bears. His third touchdown perfectly captured just how dominant the Pats have been. With a 46-yards touchdown reception, Rob Gronkowski matched a career high with nine receptions. Mind you, it is still early in the third quarter. The Patriots are hammering the Bears, 45-7. Gronkowski's catch-and- ...
