Former Patriot Aaron Hernandez has additional murder charges stemming from a drive-by shooting in 2012. One of the survivors of the drive-by has identified Hernandez as the shooter: it’s a little odd that he only recognized him after he was arrested for the later murder, but there is some damning circumstantial evidence compounding the case. The new allegations mean Hernandez may have played a season of football after killing two people in a drive-by.

The new charges may help the Patriots in the salary dispute with Hernandez, as Miguel Benzan pointed out in the Patsfans.com post we referenced yesterday, that means there is a prior existing circumstance that will prevent his availability, meaning the Patriots may be able to go after his signing bonus on his contract extension. Of course, the team needs to get in line, the families of the 2012 victims have already filed wrongful death actions. Hernandez may spend the rest of his life behind bars.
