Florida removes commemorative Aaron Hernandez brick
It seems like anyone and everyone is removing all traces that former NFL Player Aaron Hernandez even existed. Aside from the Pouncey brothers wearing their “free Hernandez” caps, the rest of the world is destroying evidence – just like Hernandez is accused of doing.
From the NFL record books to EA’s Madden NFL Series – Hernandez is non-existent. Now, his alma mater Florida is removing a part of their past as well.

It’s pretty crazy how fast people are trying to forget this guy – and for good reason. They’ve had a plan in place to remove all traces of Hernandez since the news broke, the school announced via ESPN.
“We didn’t feel it was appropriate to celebrate Aaron Hernandez. We put together an immediate plan after the initial news broke to remove his likeness and name in various private and public areas in the facility, such as the South Endzone team area, locker room, football offices, Heavener Complex Kornblau Lobby and the brick display entrance to the football facility,” the school said in a statement.
