Before last night’s preseason finale against the Giants Patriots team president Jonathan Kraft disputed multiple claims about former tight end Aaron Hernandez in Rolling Stone magazine.

“Reading the article there were three things or two three four things that I saw that I just know are completely factually inaccurate” Kraft said on The Sports Hub 98.5. “Not close to being factually accurate just inaccurate. I look at it and read the article and wonder how much else there is. I don’t know about the other things.”

Among things written that Kraft said were false was that coach Bill Belichick replaced the team’s security chief Frank Mendes with Mark Briggs. The article alleged that Mendes was tied in with state troopers while Briggs who managed Wembley Stadium didn’t have the same local ties.

“One of them that was a real obvious one is it said that Bill replaced security chief Frank Mendes with Mark Briggs who runs our security today and there’s just a number of things factually inaccurate about that” Kraft said. “Mark Briggs did not replace Frank Mendes they actually worked together for 18 or 24 months. Mark Briggs was not hired by Bill Belichick. I think the first time Bill Belichick met Mark Briggs is long after he was hired and working for us.”

The Rolling Stone piece -- co-authored by Paul Solotaroff and Herald sports columnist Ron Borges -- also said that Hernandez confided in Belichick that he feared for his life and the coach told him to “lay low (and) rent a safe house for a while.”
