Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriot who is accused of murder, is now being investigated for illegal gun trafficking.

The investigation spans several states, including Florida, Massachusetts, and New York, and now Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey has been subpoenaed in relation to the case. Representatives for the team declined comment after he was served on Sunday.

“Organizationally, we do not have a comment,” said Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene. “And Mike Pouncey does not have a comment.”

Of course, being served doesn’t mean that Pouncey is accused of any wrongdoing, just that the grand jury considers him to be a witness who could help with the case, which is expanding every day. Hernandez is also being investigated for a role he may have played in the 2012 double murder of two men outside a Boston club.

The former football star has pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a former friend. His arrest came in June, after Lloyd’s body was found in an industrial complex near Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts; he was cut from the New England Patriots not long after. The DA says there is quite a bit of evidence connecting Hernandez to Lloyd’s murder, including bullet casings, surveillance video, and a cell phone that Hernandez reportedly tried to destroy. The motive for the killing is allegedly a dispute that erupted between the two men after Hernandez saw Lloyd talking to someone he didn’t care for inside a club.

  • Really?

    Trust me a NFL player is not a gun runner. Your government is. In fact, a former ATF agent by the name of John Dodson has written a book about that. Thousands of weapons that were used in “stings” ended up “missing” and ultimately, in the hands of major foreign drug cartels/governments. Then the ATF buried all the paperwork on this.

    America just wake up and stop living in a dream world. The government and judicial system in this country are corrupt as can be. Repeat after me: the three biggest industries in the world are Oil, Guns, and Drugs. Why are all our wars fought overt? Oil, Guns, and Drugs. What flourishes during wars? Oil, Guns, and Drugs. Heck our CIA is funded by drug and gun running.

    We live in an illusion in this country. No one deals with reality of who we really are and why we do things. We buy into the mom, apple pie, and country propaganda.

      By the way, the ATF tried to stop Dodson from publishing the book. However, on October 16th it was ruled that he could publish it — he just can’t get paid for his work. Also, the Justice Department, ATF and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will review Dodson’s manuscript and, after making redactions to protect sensitive law enforcement information, will clear it for publication.

      So essentially, they will be censoring the whole book. Isn’t amazing how everything released by the government is edited to protect “sensitive” information? Your government does nothing but lie to you.
