The Miami Dolphins walked out of Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon with a disappointing loss after holding the New England Patriots to just three points in the first quarter. Miami led 17-3 going into halftime with a 17-3 lead, and Patriots QB Tom Brady appeared to emerge onto the field in the second half with a swollen passing hand. At the end of the game, the Dolphins surrendered 24 unanswered points and lost the game. Unfortunately for some Dolphins players, the game was more painful than others.
SI.com is reporting tonight that just after the Dolphins loss this afternoon, Miami’s offensive center, Mike Pouncey was served with a grand jury subpoena in regards to an ongoing investigation regarding his former University of Florida teammate, Aaron Hernandez.
The website is reporting that law enforcement is now investigating the possibility that Hernandez was involved in a gun trafficking ring and law enforcement officials from Massachusetts, New York and the State of Florida are involved in the investigation.
Pouncey is considered to be a witness in this ongoing investigation, not a suspect. Mike Pouncey and his twin brother, Maurkice, now with the Pittsburgh Steelers, lived with Hernandez while they were members of the University of Florida football team at various times. The Pouncey twins were photographed in the offseason wearing “Free Hernandez” hats while clubbing after the tight end was arrested on a murder charge as well as other charges.
