One year ago, former Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez was catching six passes for 85 yards in New England's playoff victory vs. the Texans. On Saturday while his former teammates were celebrating yet another trip to the AFC title game, Hernandez sat in jail, awaiting trial on murder charges and unable to watch the Patriots in action. As the Boston Herald reports, while some prisoners in general population at the Bristol County jail were allowed to watch an hour of the Patriots' victory Sunday vs. the Colts, Hernandez wasn't one of them. "No," Bristol County sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson told the Herald. "He's not allowed to watch any TV. ... It's jail. It's all about standards and sending a message."
