Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown shared his reaction to the Aaron Hernandez documentary on Netflix.
The documentary, which is incredibly interesting and a recommended watch even for non-football fans, tells the story of the former New England Patriots tight end who was convicted for the murder of his friend and former semi-pro football player, Odin Lloyd.
Along with that trial, it also details a second trial for a double homicide that he was charged with but ended up being acquitted of.
It also goes into Hernandez’s upbringing, as well as his high school, college and professional days, among several other things. The overall story is a truly shocking, horrifying, and sad all rolled into one.
Brown, who says he grew up a Patriots fan, reacted to the documentary on Twitter.
Whether you’re a Patriots fan or not, Hernandez’s story will not doubt hit you right in the gut in some way, shape or form.
Brown hints at a return to baseball?
Well before being drafted by the Titans in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Brown was drafted by the MLB’s San Diego Padres in the 19th round of the 2016 draft and participated in the team’s extended spring training for three years before ultimately choosing football.
However, in a tweet posted on Thursday, Brown said he “might make a return one day” to baseball, while also tagging the Padres in his tweet.
It would figure that the Titans finally have a star receiver like Brown on their team and he would leave to return to baseball or attempt to be a two-sport star. Of course, it isn’t clear if he was being serious or not, but that would be just the Titans’ luck.
Brown has emerged into a star for Tennessee in his rookie season. He has made big play after big play during the regular season and finished with 52 catches for 1,051 yards and nine total touchdowns (eight receiving).
He’s also most certainly in the running for Offensive Rookie of the Year.
