”We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys but may not understand why parents don’t want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys anymore,” team spokesman Stacey James said in a statement. “We hope this opportunity to exchange those jerseys at the Patriots ProShop will be well received by parents.”

This opportunity for a free exchange is limited to the weekend of July 6-7 and is available only at the Patriots ProShop at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. The hours of operation are 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Sunday.

The exchange is for jerseys available in the ProShop only and is limited to one per person. For more details and restrictions, please visit the Patriots website at www.patriots.com.
