Now that the New England Patriots have dropped tight end Aaron Hernandez over murder charges involving the execution-style killing of Odin Lloyd, some collectors are turning to eBay to score a deal on what could be a macabre piece of sports memorabilia.
Hundreds of others, though, just wanted to swap their Hernandez shirts for those of a teammate not charged with murder. Today, the Patriots offered to exchange Hernandez jerseys for the customer’s choice of any other player, and plenty took advantage.
The shirt exchange netted more than a thousand jerseys.
