EA Sports have confirmed that former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, currently charged with first-degree murders, has been deleted from their popular video games Madden ’14 and NCAA ’14.

The company confirmed the Hernandez deletion via a spokesperson to CBS Sports after a Twitter picture of a reward ‘card’ in NCAA ’14 showing Hernandez in his Florida Gators uniform went viral.

It was confirmed that the 23-year-old had already been deleted from Madden ’14, though he is currently without a team after being released by the Patriots.

It was shortly after his arrest that the Patriots made the decision to release him and told fans who had bought his jersey they could exchange them for another member of the team
