- Hernandez was so paranoid from persistent use of angel dust that he kept a gun with him at all times.
- He isolated himself from family and teammates, instead consorting with gangsters.
- Between missed practices and other incidents of acting out, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was on the verge of cutting the tight end.
