According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, sources have told him that former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was a loner off the field.
Yet there was the other, much more mysterious side. It was the elephant in the room with the thunderous steps, according to several sources with direct ties to Hernandez and the locker room. The vivacious, fun-loving player on the field was a loner behind the curtain.
His teammates didn’t fully grasp why they didn’t see him outside the facility. It’s a case of not really knowing a person the way everyone might have hoped.
“No one hung out with him,” according to one source. “No one.”
Another source further explained that sentiment, adding, “Out of 53 guys, surely there’s someone you could find to hang out with. Instead, he chose to revert to his network from his hometown.”
