With Rolling Stone’s explosive piece on Aaron Hernandez dropping just days ago, a slew of new information regarding the tight end’s troubled past and shady behavior has been revealed like never before.

Everything from his PCP use to friction with teammates and coaching staff was opened for the world to see, enlightening us to how a man like Aaron might be motivated to kill. But despite all of the negative attention and news surrounding him over the past few months, it appears that there are a few NFL franchises interested in his services… assuming that he is convicted of a lesser gun charge that would see him released in just a few years.

Paul Solotaroff from the Rolling Stones went on the “Doug Gottlieb Show” recently to explain how, because of the “overcharges by prosecutors,” Hernandez may find a way out. Or at least just serve less time.

“His principle nemesis at this point is likely to be the five gun charges levied against him; I think they got him dead to right on most of those,” Solotaroff said.

“But as crazy as it sounds, this is a guy with no priors. So asking a judge to sentence Hernandez to consecutive prison bids – rather than contemporary ones – is going to be a very hard sell for the prosecution.”

“And if in fact he winds up doing three years behind (bars for) those gun charges – which would be a lot in this case – he’s 26, 27, with very low mileage on those legs of his and a lot of time to heal up. My sources tell me there will be more than one NFL team pursuing him hotly when he walks out of jail in four years.”

If the saga were to go down like this, it would be one of the most controversial endings to the wildest scandal in sports history. Imagine four years from now, a 27-year-old Aaron Hernandez going back into the NFL and snagging TDs all the way into the Super Bowl. Talk about a redemption story.
