Pats ProShop hosts Hernandez jersey exchange this weekend


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. ( – Former fans of Aaron Hernandez can exchange Hernandez's No. 81 or No. 85 jerseys for any other player's jersey this weekend.

The shirts must have been purchased from the New England Patriots ProShop at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.

The exchange is limited to one jersey per customer. A receipt from the ProShop is not needed for the exchange, however, only NFL officially licensed jerseys sold from the ProShop are eligible for the exchange. Both Nike and Reebok are acceptable.

Jerseys are eligible for exchange at the ProShop on Sat., July 6, and Sun., July 7, 2013. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

The team has been quick to distance itself from the former Patriots tight end, releasing him shortly after his arrest.

Hernandez, 23, is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to a murder charge in the death of Odin Lloyd, 27, of Dorchester.
