Aaron Hernandez Bashes Robert Kraft, Praises Tom Brady in Prison Letter
Aaron Hernandez is slated to spend every football season behind bars for the rest of his life. But apparently that doesn’t mean he’s stopped watching.
TMZ Sports obtained a letter Hernandez recently wrote to a female pen pal, in which he says he watches the Patriots regularly and still roots for all of his friends. That list includes Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, and Rob Gronkowski, but not owner Robert Kraft—who signed Hernandez to a $40 million contract extension in August 2012, less than one year before Odin Lloyd was killed.
“The closest I was with was probably Brady and whom I love to death and always will and only hope the best for them,” Hernandez writes. “But was cool with Julez, [Deion] Branch (I f**ked with and got mad love for) and ‘the BEST TE ever to walk on a football field’ Gronk!”
Hernandez mentions Kraft a little later on, calling him “non loyal” and saying he “told me he loved me every time he seen me but obviously shows his word ain’t [expletive].” Kraft testified against Hernandez in his murder trial last year and said the entire Patriots organized “had been duped” by the tight end. Prior to his arrest in June 2013, Kraft was one of Hernandez’s biggest advocates, even going as far as to give the former tight end a shoutout during the team’s annual charitable foundation gala in 2012 for a sizable donation he had made to the Myra Kraft Fund.
Hernandez was convicted of first-degree murder in the Lloyd case last April and is currently serving a life sentence. He has also been charged with killing two men in the South End in 2012, but that trial has been postponed.
