  • Aaron Hernandez is one of the most disgraced athletes in the history of American sports.
  • The former Patriots tight end was convicted of murder in 2015.
  • Despite this, a Sports Illustrated writer has his autograph tattooed on his hand.

Over the weekend, in celebration of Easter, Sports Illustrated Detroit Lions writer Daniel Kelly took to Twitter to share that he wore his Aaron Hernandez Patriots jersey on the holy day while also sharing the ink he has of the late tight end’s autograph.

“I am wearing my Hernandez jersey today as a reminder we are saved by grace through faith and not by our works (Ephesians 2:8). Aaron understood that. He used his own blood to share that truth. That’s why his autograph is tattooed on my hand,” Kelly wrote on Twitter.

In addition to his explanation of the tattoo, Kelly also shared the link to the ESPN story that reported on Hernandez’s suicide in 2017. Hernandez, who was found dead in his Souza-Baranowski prison cell, had ‘John 3:16’ written in ink on his forehead at the time of his death. He was 27-years-old.
