This final note for those New England Patriots fans with an Aaron Hernandez jersey lying around the house. Considering the allegations against the former Patriot tight end, it'd be pretty awkward to wear that number 81 football jersey out in public. You know, now that Hernandez is accused of murder.

The New England Patriots announced today that you've got the opportunity to exchange your Hernanez jersey for another one free of charge.

It's a limited-time offer. Just this weekend.
