Patriots fans line up to swap Hernandez jerseys

FOXBOROUGH — A long line of Patriots fan clutching Aaron Hernandez jerseys of all sizes and colors wrapped around Gillette Stadium early Saturday morning to say goodbye to their #81s.

The Patriots ProShop at the stadium in Foxborough is offering a free exchange this weekend of any #81 jersey purchased at the store or its online site for a new Patriots jersey of comparable value. The team announced the exchange June 28, two days after Hernandez was arrested and charged in the slaying of Odin Lloyd and dismissed from the Patriots roster.
