Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was an abuser of the drug angel dust. 

This is just a small preview of the beleaguered Hernandez in the upcoming Rolling Stone magazine article entitled "Gangster in the Huddle" written by contributing editor Paul Solotaroff.

In the words of Yoon S. Byun of the Boston Globe, "Hernandez was a heavey user of angel dust, and had become so paranoid over the last year that he carried a gun wherever he went." 

Byun also enumerates several more startling revelations about Hernandez:

-- He associated himself with gangsters more than his family and teammates. 

-- Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was once on the verge of cutting Hernandez due to him skipping practices and pulling off other off-field stunts.

-- Hernandez's parents, Dennis and Terri, both had criminal records. 

-- His college coach at Florida, Urban Meyer, was mum on several issues surrounding Hernandez at the time - including failed drug tests and several violent incidents. 

Hernandez was arrested and charged with Murder on June 26 for the death of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd in Massachusetts. He was released by the Patriots, who signed him to a $40 million deal last summer, within hours of his arrest. He pleaded not guilty

On August 22, he was indicted by a grand jury on first-degree murder and weapons charges. As there is no death penalty in Massachusetts, Hernandez could face life in prison if found guilty. 

Prior to his arrest, Hernandez, a fourth-round draft choice of New England in the 2010 NFL Draft, played three seasons for the Patriots. He registered 1,956 receiving yards on 175 receptions for 18 career touchdowns, per ESPN stats.
