The Patriots have announced a free exchange of any Aaron Hernandez jersey on July 6-7.
Any Hernandez jersey that was purchased at the Patriots ProShop or through PatriotsProShop.com can be exchanged for a different player's jersey of comparable value at no additional charge.
"We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys but may not understand why parents don't want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys anymore," team spokesman Stacey James said in a statement. "We hope this opportunity to exchange those jerseys at the Patriots ProShop will be well received by parents."
This opportunity for a free exchange is limited to the weekend of July 6-7 and is available only at the Patriots ProShop at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. The hours of operation are 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Sunday.
The exchange is for jerseys available in the ProShop only and is limited to one per person. For more details and restrictions, please visit the Patriots website at www.patriots.com.
