Tim Tebow: Aaron Hernandez Murder Charge "Heartbreaking and Sad"

Patriots have told their players not to discuss it


New England Patriots third-string quarterback Tim Tebow, who played at the University of Florida with Aaron Hernandez, said Friday that Hernandez's murder charge is "heartbreaking and sad."

"It's just heartbreaking and sad and all my thoughts and prayers go out to all the families that were involved," he said. "I understand why you have to ask all the questions, that's part of doing your job. Part of mine is listening to instruction and we've been told not to talk about it."
