New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has broken his silence on Aaron Hernandez, sitting down with a number of media outlets to discuss the situation.
The 72-year-old, who has owned the team since 1994, recounted his initial shock when one of his stars became embroiled in a homicide investigation.
Hernandez has since been charged with the premeditated murder of Odin Lloyd.
"If this stuff is true, then I've been duped and our whole organization has been duped," Kraft told ESPN of the player he drafted out of Florida in 2010.
“Here we have a guy who, man, it looks like had the world by the tail. He said to me he wanted to be a role model to the Hispanic community," Kraft said.
