Report: Patriots' Belichick, Hernandez Exchanged Texts
The New England Patriots just want the headache with their former tight-end Aaron Hernandez to just go away. The imprisoned tight-end has shown up again in the media as a report came out that head coach Bill Belichik and Hernandez exchanged 33 pages of text messages. However that report seems to be inaccurate ?and the Patriots have something to say about it.

?Earlier this week, a report indicated that an exchange of text messages between the team?s head coach and Mr. Hernandez totaled 33 pages,? Phelan said. ?While it is unknown how the texts were printed or displayed, I thought it was important to clarify that during an early investigation conducted by state prosecutors, the team produced a total of 34 text messages (not pages of texts) spanning a period of five months (December 2012 ? May 2013) between the head coach and Mr. Hernandez.?
