Trading in your Hernandez jersey is a "VERY" popular thing to do...
The New England Patriots made an offer to Pats fans who didn't want to continue wearing their No. 81 Aaron Hernandez Jerseys: Come in this weekend and trade in your Hernandez Jersey and they'll give you any other jersey of equal value for free.
It appears that offer is very popular with fans.
Our pals at NESN have compiled an assortment of tweets, pics and notes from the fans who took advantage of the offer on a very hot Saturday.
It appears that when a player is incarcerated and charged with murder, that fans aren't as enthusiastic to be wearing his jersey as they once were.
All Ray Lewis comparisons aside, Patriots fans can't wait to rid themselves of the Hernandez stigma. Hundreds of fans (over 500 by some estimates) were turning in their No. 81 for any other jersey so far today.
If you're one of those who turned in your jersey, EMAIL us your story for a chance to be on Patriots Insider.
