Being that this is a relatively continuous lull for the Philadelphia Eagles, we have decided to put together a twitter package of the biggest NFL news from today — the arrest (by the police) and the release (by the New England Patriots) of Aaron Hernandez.
First, the arrest.
BREAKING: Aaron Hernandez has just been escorted from house in handcuffs by 2 police officers. No further details available at this time.

Honestly the only surprise about the Patriots releasing Aaron Hernandez is that it even took this long.
