Patriots offer Hernandez jersey swap this weekend

Posted: Updated:

The New England Patriots will be accepting exchanges on Aaron Hernandez jerseys this weekend at the ProShop.

The former Patriots tight end is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of a Boston man. He was cut by the team hours after his arrest last month.

The New England Patriots ProShop will offer a free exchange of any No. 81 or No. 85 Hernandez jersey purchased at the Patriots ProShop or online at PatriotsProShop.com for a new Patriots jersey of comparable value.

The free exchange offer is good only Saturday and Sunday at the ProShop, which is located at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.

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

The exchange is limited to one jersey per person.

The ProShop is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
