Law & Disorder

New England – Former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez remained jailed on Thursday, as bail was once again denied to him by a Massachusetts judge. The bail hearing was argued before Judge Renee Dupuis in Bristol County court. Prosecutors wanted him to remain in custody, while Hernandez’s lawyers said he should be allowed to post bail. Judge Dupuis ruled for the prosecution, saying the case against the player is “a very, very strong circumstantial case.” Also, Hernandez on Thursday cleared the NFL waiver wire as no team claimed him and his contract. He’s now a free agent. Also, Puma has ended its relationship with Hernandez.

Cleveland – Former Browns LB Ausar Walcott pleaded not guilty on Thursday to an attempted murder charge in New Jersey. Walcott was arrested for hitting another man in the side of the head while they were outside a Garden State strip club. Derek Jones is the man he hit, and he remains in critical condition in a New York hospital. Walcott is being held on $500,000 bail.

Dallas – Cowboys DT Josh Brent was in jail on Thursday after failing a second drug test. This came up positive for marijuana. Brent tested positive earlier in June and he’s been out of jail on bond. He’s awaiting trial for the death of teammate Jerry Brown, who was killed in an auto accident where Brent was driving dunk.


New York Jets – Former AFL safety Jim Hudson passed away in Austin, Texas on Wednesday. He was 70 years old. Hudson was a two-way player at the University of Texas, where he was quarterback of the Longhorns against Joe Namath and the University of Alabama in 1965. With the Jets, he played safety for 6 seasons and 54 games. He had 14 interceptions, one of those in the 1967 season against the Chiefs at old Municipal Stadium.
