Aaron Hernandez Listed As Key To Patriots Offense In “USA Today” NFL Preview

The next time an old person starts complaining about the decline of newspapers and magazines vis-à-vis “blogs” and “Twitters,” show them this.

On Sunday, Adam Schefter, the NFL Insider writer for ESPN, pointed out that USA Today had listed Aaron Hernandez as the New England Patriots’ X-factor in their 2013 NFL Preview issue.

The same Aaron Hernandez that is currently facing murder charges and is possibly linked to a 2012 double homicide in Boston? Yeah, that guy is who USA Today believes will be the Patriots X-factor this upcoming season. But that’s not even the worst part.

After Schefter’s tweet, a fan noted that ESPN put Hernandez in their preview issue too, even including a huge picture of him in the football uniform he will most likely not ever be wearing again.

Clearly, these two publications just fell victim to deadlines that were set before the Hernandez story broke, but that’s why the internet rules and print is soo yesterday.
