What would you do if you were forced to spend 21 hours each day in solitary confinement? Would you do pushups until your arms fell off? Would you read books cover to cover and then back again?

Aaron Hernandez, apparently, has chosen to sift through letters from curious fans. He had already written to two people (you can read those letters here and here) and now a third has surfaced thanks to the folks at Radar Online.

First, the transcription, with the actual letter below.


Hey brotha, let me start by saying thanks for the support, it definitely means alot! Everything happens for a reason in life in both of our situations. Whatever obstacles/struggles will only make us stronger. We actually have something in common because my dream as a kid was to play in NBA an is still my favorite sport but had a better chance in football! Never be down from your incident because “God” has a plan before all of us & that’s why I’ll never be down! Stay away from all negative people so your always there for your little boy cuz I miss by little girl terribly an my biggest fear of all is she wont know daddy! She said daddy first time or should I say “DaDa” and had to hear it from jail. Im going fine but wanted to write you and definitely wanted to say thanks for the support! Hope to hear back from you if wanted! Please keep this private is all I ask!———>

Thanks again,


P.S. Im a great dude don’t believe all the neg. publicity please!

*Media is the Negative of the fame! Stay up and keep a smile on that babys face & Be there for him!
Thanks again brotha!

So there you have it, Aaron Hernandez is a “great dude.” That ends that debate.
