Aaron Hernandez’s ‘happy’ last days
Lead defense attorney Jose Baez can still vividly remember the last days of his client Aaron Hernandez’s life before he committed suicide at Massachusetts’s Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center.
In 2017, the former Patriots tight end was found hanging from a bedsheet attached to a window in his cell.
Baez said Hernandez appeared joyful about his acquittal and didn’t seem to have death on his mind. Baez was reportedly gearing up to tackle the verdict that was keeping Hernandez behind bars.
Aaron’s final days were happy days, he explained. He was excited by the fact that he got acquitted. He was looking forward to the future. The best way I could describe it is through his own words. He said, ‘I feel like a kid again.’ He was so excited and happy.
He has started three games in four years. This is a reunion with Tyke Tolbert, Latimer’s receivers coach in Denver. Tolbert, hired by Pat Shurmur to coach the Giants receivers, no doubt had positive things to report to the front office about Latimer and welcomed him on Twitter, posting, He has grown as a person and a player since entering the NFL 4 years ago!
1. Kirk Cousins: No one won bigger than Cousins, the former Redskins quarterback who agreed to a three-year, fully guaranteed contract with the Vikings for $86 million. Not bad for a quarterback who owns a career won-loss record of 26-30-1 and has lost the only playoff game he’s qualified for.
Granted, Cousins has put up some prolific numbers the last three seasons, throwing for more than 4,000 yards in each of them, but it’s a risky move on the part of the Vikings, who parted ways with 2017 starter Case Keenum after going 13-3 last season.
For Cousins, who’s made nearly $44 million the past two seasons in Washington thanks to being tagged as a franchise player, the move to the Vikings makes a lot of sense given the skill-position offensive talent he’ll have around him, including Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Kyle Rudolph and Dalvin Cook.
