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.
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.
