Aaron Hernandez stood tall, shoulders broad and smile wide, and he displayed some real emotion while discussing his new contract last night at Gillette Stadium.
Hernandez signed a five-year, $40 million extension through 2018. It included a $12.5 million signing bonus and $16.4 million in guaranteed money, according to sources.
“It’s a lifelong dream, and it’s still kind of surreal,” Hernandez said.
