‘Rolling Stone’ Digs Up More Dirt About Aaron Hernandez

'Rolling Stone' Digs Up More Dirt About Aaron HernandezJust when you thought the story surrounding Aaron Hernandez couldn’t get any darker or more sinister, Rolling Stone delivers some intriguing details surrounding the former New England Patriots player and his life leading up to his current incarceration.

‘Heavy user of angel dust’

On Monday, the magazine’s official website published an article that serves as a tease for its new issue and the piece written by contributing editor Paul Solotaroff titled “The Gangster in the Huddle,” which centers on Hernandez’s life and the people he surrounded himself with.  Here is what the website asserts will be included in the upcoming piece.

• Hernandez was a heavy user of angel dust, and had become so paranoid over the last year that he carried a gun wherever he went.

• He surrounded himself with a cohort of gangsters, and cut himself off from his family and teammates.

• Hernandez had so infuriated his head coach, Bill Belichick, with missed practices and thug-life stunts, that he was one misstep from being cut.


‘Cover up’

• Both his parents, Dennis and Terri, had criminal records, as did much of his extended family.

• Terri allegedly cheated on Dennis before his death with a violent drug dealer named Jeffrey Cummings, then married Cummings after Dennis died and moved him into the house she shared with Aaron.

• In college his coach (then-University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer) may have helped cover up failed drug tests, along with two violent incidents — an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar.

As CBS Sports’ Will Brinson reports, Hernandez was indicted on a charge of first-degree murder for the death of Odin Lloyd, and he will be arraigned on September 6.

Scouts Say Tim Tebow Is Not Fit For NFL

Scouts Say Tim Tebow Is Not Fit For NFLTim Tebow’s skills have eroded so quickly, so shockingly fast—think heavy boulder dropped from low orbit—that it has actually stunned several scouts who have watched him closely for years. The belief is that Tebow has been and will continue to be so bad, that the Patriots will have no choice but to cut him loose from the roster.

‘Lack of speed’

Now, just to be clear: None of this is presented as Tebow-bashing or a type of huge exposé. To some, this isn’t even shocking. To me, some of this was. Scouts I trust saying Tebow isn’t fit to play arena ball?

The reason why is speed. Speed doesn’t just kill; speed is currency in football. It’s the dollar, the deutsche mark. That lack of speed is evident in three critical phases of Tebow’s game: His throwing motion, his mental acuity and his ability to avoid tacklers. It’s not simply that he can’t do these things now. We knew that. What’s stunning, upon closer examination, is the rapidity with which these skills have been lost.


‘Blocker’

In the preseason opener against Philadelphia, Tebow was 4-of-12 passing for 55 yards. He was sacked three times and had a passer rating of 49. Then, against Tampa Bay, he had just one completion, an interception and finished with a passer rating of zero.

Scouts say they don’t recognize the Tebow they saw in college. His regression has been so steep that I don’t believe there is a league he can now play in.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick says Tebow is improving, but no one believes that. There’s no way even Belichick believes that. Barring a transplant of Bart Starr’s mitochondria into Tebow’s synapses, what we are seeing with Tebow is the end. Unless he becomes a blocker.

Do you think this is the end of Tim Tebow’s NFL career? Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions with us!
