Rolling Stone Author: Hernandez Will Be Back In The NFL In 3-4 Years

BOSTON (CBS) – If Aaron Hernandez beats the first-degree murder charges he is currently  facing, or receives a short sentence for gun charges, multiple NFL teams will be ready to offer him a contract according to the author of the recent Rolling Stone article on the former Patriots’ tight end.

Rolling Stone contributing editor Paul Solotarof, co-author of “The Gangster In The Huddle,” joined CBS Sports Radio’s The Doug Gottlieb Show on Wednesday, and said he wouldn’t be surprised if Hernandez beats the first-degree murder charges he currently faces in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd.

“I think [the case] is not only beatable, [but] I think he will be back in the NFL within three or four years,” Solotaroff said.”I think they’ve grossly overcharged him based on the case they’re building — no direct eye witness, no murder weapon [and] no plausible motive.”
