Aaron Hernandez has been arraigned this week on murder charges for a double homicide back in July 2012, but NFL rookie Eric Ebron has said that people shouldn't rush to judge him just yet.
Even though the former New England Patriots tight-end has a clean criminal record at the moment, he has seen his fair share of trouble over the years.
However, Ebron gave his views on the saga when he was interviewed by TMZ Sports.
When asked about his thoughts on the Hernandez and whether he's afraid of going out to clubs, he went down a different route of slightly defending Hernandez on account of him not being found guilty as yet.
"He pleaded not guilty, that's crazy," he told TMZ. "Life is crazy, people are crazy, and that's why you stay away from them."
Last year Hernandez was first arrested and charged with the murder of former semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd before the extra double murder charges came out.
Hernandez's last game for the Pats came during the 2012 season. During his career at Gillette Stadium, the tight-end started 29 games over three seasons. He scored 18 touchdowns, and his best year came in 2011 when he caught 79 balls for 910 yards and seven TD's.
Now he looks set to be in prison for a long-time.
