Tim Tebow and Tom Brady Tried to Keep Aaron Hernandez Out of Trouble

By

The new three-part documentary, Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez, delves into the life of former Patriots player Aaron Hernandez before he was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. 

But one thing not known by many is that during his football career, Hernandez formed an unlikely friendship with fellow players Tom Brady and Tim Tebow, both of whom tried to keep him out of trouble leading up to his eventual arrest and suicide.

Tim and Hernandez met in college at the University of Florida.

The unlikely duo first met when Tim hosted Hernandez on a visit to the University of Florida, where Hernandez was potentially being recruited. After Hernandez graduated from high school a semester early to start his collegiate football career at the university, Tim continued to look out for Hernandez while on the team.

According to the New York Post, the Florida Gators coach, Urban Meyer, wanted to kick Hernandez off the team at one point over his "chronic" use of marijuana.
