PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey apologized for wearing a baseball cap supporting former college teammate Aaron Hernandez.
Pouncey and his twin brother Mike, a center for the Miami Dolphins, were photographed wearing hats that read “Free Hernandez” during their
co-birthday party in Miami on Saturday night.
Hernandez, who pleaded not guilty to murder charges, played at the University of Florida with the Pounceys from 2007-09.
Maurkice Pouncey posted on his Twitter account Monday he understands the “seriousness of the situation involving my former teammate.” Pouncey apologized if he offended anyone.
