Bio And Wiki
Aaron Hernandez is one of the most famous and trending Football Player in whole world right now. Aaron Hernandez was born on November 6, 1989 in Bristol, Connecticut, United States. He was born as Aaron Josef Hernandez, but best known as Aaron Hernandez.
Family, Childhood, and Education
His father name is Dennis Hernandez and mother name is Terri Valentine-Hernandez. He had one sibling brother, Dennis Jr known as DJ. Their father died due to hernia complications when Aaron was 16.
He attended Bristol Central High School and played for the Bristol Rams football team. He received Connecticut’s ‘Gatorade Football Player of the Year’ award in his senior year. Despite being committed to play alongside his elder brother at UConn, he eventually joined the University of Florida under head coach Urban Meyer.
He left college before senior year to enter the 2010 NFL Draft, during which he was selected by the New England Patriots in the fourth round. Following a controversy regarding marijuana use and multiple failed drug tests while in college, he had to issue a statement before signing a four-year contract with them on June 8, 2010. The youngest player in the NFL during the 2010 season, he caught his first and second career touchdowns in their Week 9 loss against the Cleveland Browns. He went on to receive the ‘Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week’ award for catching two touchdown passes from Tom Brady in Week 15, and ended the season with six touchdowns from 14 games.
During the 2011 season, he achieved career-best 129 yards on nine receptions with a touchdown against the Denver Broncos and later led the Patriots to Super Bowl XLVI, losing to the New York Giants. He played 12 of 14 games during the season, starting 10 of them, but like last season, missed two games due to knee injury.
He signed a five-year contract extension in the following season with the largest ever signing bonus given to an NFL tight end. While he missed several weeks for high ankle sprain, he registered 8 receptions for 58 yards, including two touchdowns, during the Monday Night Football game against the Houston Texans on December 10.
A 17-year-old Aaron Hernandez was involved in a bar fight at a restaurant in Gainesville, Florida, on April 28, 2007 after refusing to pay for a couple of drinks he took. He reportedly punched the employee who escorted him out, rupturing his eardrum, but the case was settled out of court with a deferred prosecution agreement.
He again faced legal troubles after he was investigated for the double murder of immigrants Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado in Boston’s South End on July 16, 2012. He was indicted of the two murders based on the testimony of a drug dealer, but was acquitted of most of the charges, including that of murders, on April 14, 2017, days before his death.
In June 2013, he was accused of shooting Alexander S. Bradley, a friend, during an altercation back in February, which allegedly cost him his right eye. The lawsuit was settled in February 2016, but he was indicted on witness intimidation charges for the Boston double murders. He was acquitted of these charges later during his 2017 trial.
Following the murder of Odin Lloyd, one of his friends, on June 17, 2013, in North Attleborough, Massachusetts, the police searched his house due to multiple suspicious activities, like destroying his home security system intentionally. Soon after, he was asked not to be near Gillette Stadium, as the Patriots’ team management had decided to cut ties with him fearing his arrest.
On June 26, 2013, he was arrested by the police and was released from the Patriots team soon after, before he was charged with first-degree murder and five more gun-related charges later that day. After being indicted by a grand jury on August 22, 2013, he pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder of Lloyd on September 6, 2013 and was held at the Bristol County Jail.
On April 15, 2015, he was found guilty of first-degree murder, as well as five fire arms charges, which according to state laws, resulted in life sentence without the possibility of parole. He was initially taken to the maximum-security facility, the Massachusetts Correctional Institution – Cedar Junction, but was later transferred to another maximum-security prison, the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, to serve his sentence.
Awards & Achievements

In the same year, Hernandez was awarded as First team All American award. He was also the holder of the award for the First team all-SEC in 2009.
BCS National Championship of 2009 involved Hernandez in the tournament. Another tournament where Hernandez was part of it was the SEC Championship held in the year 2008.
He signed yet another contract which was to be five years long. It was an extension of the previous one with the same team. He signed it in 2012 on 27th August.
He was found hanging by his bed-sheets from the window in his cell on April 19th, 2017, and was declared dead after being taken to UMass Memorial Hospital-Leominster. Three handwritten notes were recovered from a Bible opened to John 3:16, and drawings in blood were found on the walls of his cell.
After his death, his lawyers filed a motion at Massachusetts Superior Court to vacate his murder conviction, which was granted on May 9th, 2017. As he was in the process of appealing against his conviction, according to state laws, he technically died as an innocent man.
While the autopsy report declared his death as suicide, his family requested for the release of his brain for diagnosis at Boston University, which revealed that he had brain injuries consistent with chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
Considering CTE is prevalent in footballers who suffer concussions repeatedly, his fiancée and daughter sued the Patriots and the NFL for causing his death and depriving his daughter of her father’s companionship.
