The New England Patriots are offering free exchanges if you own a No.81 Aaron Hernandez jersey, no questions asked. The exchanges must be made at the he Patriots Pro Shop at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA on either July 6 or 7 and may be for any other player jersey in the store.
The Patriot’s released the following statement:
“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 New England 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 was arrested on Wednesday and later charged with first degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd. The Patriot’s released the tight-end shortly after his arrest.
