Aaron Hernandez arrested then released by the Patriots

USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots wasted no time in getting rid of Hernandez after his arrest this morning.

Earlier this morning the police led Aaron Hernandez away from his home in handcuffs. Not long after that, this tweet came from the New Engalnd Patriots official Twitter account:

There are a lot of things that I hate about the Patriots, but I really respect them for moving this quickly on this. A lot of teams would wait for the whole thing to play out- especially after investing so much money into a player. The Patriots took about an hour to show him the door.

The police have said that they are not releasing the charge against Hernandez until he is arraigned later today. At this point, I will be a little bit surprised if the charge isn't murder.
