Hernandez signed the 2-year endorsement deal with PUMA in April 2013 as the face of its “training category,” TMZ reported. It’s unclear how much the deal was worth.
Mr. Hernandez was charged with 1st degree murder and 5 other gun-related charges in connection with the death of a 27-year-old former semi-pro football player named Odin Lloyd.
Mr. Hernandez is being held without bail. It was reported earlier Thursday that investigators in Boston are looking into whether he might be connected to a double homicide that occurred in the city last July.
