“If I had to make my decision on it he would already be with the Broncos,” Miller said. “But we’ve got guys in the front office who make those decisions. And they put us in championships with those decisions so I’m just going to follow those guys and have those guys take the lead.”
However, it doesn’t look like Browns fans are going to be underwhelmed when the team unveils its new uniforms on April 14. According to safety Donte Whitner, the new uniforms are the “Best in the league.”
So is this one of the Browns’ new jerseys? It’s hard to say, but it’s not completely unbelievable.
The exchange will be available the weekend of July 6 and July 7 and is good for a product of “comparable value.”
“We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys, but may not understand why parents don’t want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys anymore,” Patriots spokesperson Stacey James said in the announcement. “We hope this opportunity to exchange those jerseys at the Patriots ProShop for another player’s jersey will be well received by parents.”
Hernandez switched to jersey No. 81 from No. 85 prior to the 2011 season, so the No. 81 distinction in the announcement would seem to indicate the deal is only good on somewhat recently purchased jerseys. Regarding all decisions on the exchange, the Patriots said that “the Patriots ProShop reserves the right to make all determinations regarding program validity. All determinations are final.”
Hernandez, 23, was charged with murder this week and remains under investigation for an unsolved double murder in Boston last July.
Jerseys and all other Hernandez memorabilia were taken off the team’s website and pulled from the shelves shortly after the team released him on Wednesday.
