The New England Patriots want all Aaron Hernandez jerseys off the backs of kids, and off the market completely — and they don”t care what it costs to make it happen.
The team just announced that fans can exchange their #81 Hernandez jerseys for a brand new Pats jersey … totally free of charge.
A spokesperson said, “We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys, but may not understand why parents don”t want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys anymore.”
The trade-in offer is further indictment of Hernandez by his former team … which cut him even before the murder charges were announced.
The only catch to the deal is you have to exchange the jersey on July 6 or 7 at the team”s pro shop at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass.
Non-local Pats fans — you”re stuck with an alleged murderer on your back.
