Just with the sheer volume of all that is coming out and surrounding Aaron Hernandez, sometimes information can get lost in the shuffle.

But this statement and story on Wednesday from the Dayton Daily News from Hernandez's former New England Patriots teammate Matt Light is worth revisiting.

Light, who recently retired from the Patriots after an 11-year NFL career, had very little good to say about Hernandez, who now sits in a Massachusetts jail charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of acquaintance Odin Lloyd.

“I never talk about other guys, but I will say I have never embraced - never believed in - anything Aaron Hernandez stood for,” Light told the newspaper after being somewhat hesitant to comment at all.

The report states that Hernandez appeared to have his own agenda, something Light apparently took issue with - and now it appears for good reason.

Not every player in every locker room is going to get along and be best of friends, but players do spend an enormous amount of time together. So guys do get to know each other, and Light's offering on Hernandez is very telling.
