If you have an Aaron Hernandez jersey and you're not sure what to do with it -- now that the former star tight end has been charged with murder -- the Patriots have a solution.
A free jersey exchange program will be held July 6-7 for any fan looking to swap a No. 81 jersey purchased at the Patriots ProShop at Gillette Stadium or at PatriotsProShop.com.
“We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys but may not understand why parents don’t want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys anymore,” said team spokesman Stacey James in a statement. “We hope this opportunity to exchange those jerseys at the Patriots ProShop for another player’s jersey will be well received by parents.”
There is a limit of one exchange per customer.
