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.

Own a Ray Rice Baltimore Ravens jersey? If you’re a Ravens fan, you probably have one, since he’s been one of the best players on the team since 2009.

Sep 4 2014 5:16pm CDT | Source: SBNation

More people own television analyst Tim Tebow in fantasy football than a guy who starts games for an NFL team. Thank you, terrible fantasy football players. Thank you. We giggled when we saw this tweet: In @ESPNFantasy leagues, 1.3% of teams own Tim Tebow, while 0.8% of teams own Jaguars starting QB Chad Henne. Seriously. — NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) September 2, 2014 That's right: Tim Tebow, who has not thrown ...
