FOXBOROUGH, Mass (WGGB/AP/ABCNEWS – Tim Tebow says the case in which Aaron Hernandez is charged with murder is heartbreaking and sad.
Tebow spoke Friday after the first practice of the New England Patriots training camp. The quarterback played with Hernandez in college at Florida and at last month’s Patriots minicamp before they cut the tight end after his arrest on June 26.
Tebow was asked if he was shocked that a player he’s known for several years was linked to the investigation. He told reporters, ”It was heartbreaking and it was sad. We’ve been advised, I’m sure you’ve all heard a bunch of times, not to comment on the ongoing legal investigation. So I’m not going to comment further. But it’s just heartbreaking. All my thoughts and prayers go to all the families that we’ve involved.”
Hernandez is being held without bail after pleading not guilty in the shooting death of Boston semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd on June 17.
