Aaron Hernandez and Aaron Rodgers have a lot in common. They both have the first name Aaron and they both play in the NFL. Of course, there is one big difference between the two football players: One of them was recently arrested for murder charges.
If you've been reading the news lately then you've probably heard that Aaron Hernandez, not Aaron Rodgers, is a murder suspect. Hernandez was arrested earlier this week for the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Hernandez, who was released by the Patriots shortly after his arrest, recently plead not guilty to the charges.
Aaron Rodgers, on the other hand, has absolutely nothing to do with the case. The Green Bay Packers quarterback's only connection to the murder investigation is that he was accidentally named bu ESPN's Jeremy Schaap.
Schaap said: "Based off what we've heard. There is a lot of evidence implicating Aaron Rodgers in the death of Odin Lloyd."
Rodgers was apparently watching ESPN at the time and he didn't find the mistake very funny.
Rodgers wrote on Twitter: Not funny ESPN.
So, just to clear things up.
- Aaron Hernandez = recently arrested, murder suspect, former New England Patriots player.
- Aaron Rodgers = Green Bay Packers quarterback, not suspected in any murders, does not think ESPN is funny.
Not funny ESPN
