Another purported letter from former Patriot and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez surfaced on Monday.

This, like others, was first posted by TMZ Sports. In the letter, Hernandez praises his former teammates, but takes shots at Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Hernandez was convicted in 2015 of killing Odin Lloyd two years earlier. He is awaiting trial in Suffolk Superior Court, charged with killing two men in the South End of Boston in 2012. That case has been postponed pending a Supreme Judicial Court decision on evidence in the case.

The comments toward Kraft were extremely pointed.


The writer said Kraft is “fake [expletive] non loyal.” Kraft, the writer said, “told me he loved me everytime [sic] he seen me but obviously shows his word aint [sic] [expletive].

Kraft, who testified for the prosecution in the Lloyd murder trial, said in 2013 that the team was “duped” by Hernandez. The team signed the tight end to a lucrative $37.5 million contract extension less than a year earlier.

With regards to the Patriots, the writer said of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady: “I love [him] to death and always will.” The writer also called Rob Gronkowski “the BEST TE to ever walk on a football field.”
