New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was questioned by police in Massachusetts on Monday as part of an investigation into a possible homicide, according to a report from Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel and Greg Bedard. While Hernandez is not believed to be a suspect, police may want to search his home, a source told SI.
According to the report, a vehicle rented in Hernandez's name emerged as a key piece of evidence in the investigation. Police reportedly identified a rented Chevrolet Suburban in connection with a possible homicide and Hernandez's name is associated with the rental. The investigation comes after a jogger found the body of a 27-year-old man on Monday less than a mile from Hernandez' house in North Attleboro, Mass.
The investigation appears to be in the early stages as police are still waiting to analyze the vehicle for fingerprints. Hernandez did not return a call from Sports Illustrated, but a source inside the investigation confirmed he did speak to police in relation to the case.

QuoteSantonio Holmes supports Sanchez
Updated: June 12, 2013, 5:58 PM ET

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- It was a trick play at New York Jets minicamp -- nothing serious.
But from the sideline, Santonio Holmes thought Antonio Cromartie got too close to quarterback Mark Sanchez, who slipped on the play. Holmes responded by laying into Cromartie in the middle of the Jets' second practice of the mandatory minicamp.
As it turns out, Holmes has Sanchez's back in more ways than one. The wide receiver, who has been sidelined with a Lisfranc injury since last season, said he believes Sanchez will be the Jets' starting quarterback on Day 1, despite the open competition involving rookie Geno Smith.

"[Sanchez is] going to be our guy," Holmes said Wednesday. "Coaches brought him back and they kept him on this team for a reason. He's a great leader and he's got great potential and he's excited about this season upcoming, and so am I."
Whether Holmes will be ready for the start of the season remains uncertain. Holmes replied, "No comments," when asked whether he expects to play in Week 1.
Holmes, who said he needed to learn to walk all over again, characterized his rehab as progressing, but that it is limited to working out -- no running or cutting just yet. He pedaled the stationary bike briskly Wednesday.
Holmes was clear that he expects to get back to top form, he just doesn't have a timeline. And when he does return, he expects Sanchez to be under center.
"I signed back because of him, so nothing's changed," Holmes said.
It was just two seasons ago that a frustrated Holmes stormed off the field in the Jets' last game of the season. He and Sanchez needed relationship rehab that offseason, getting together one-on-one just to clear the air. It must have worked, because Holmes has been a vocal supporter of Sanchez even though the quarterback has faced criticism for turnovers the past two seasons.
"I think everybody believes in him," Holmes said "He wouldn't be here if anybody didn't believe in him. He's still wearing the same No. 6 jersey that he wore since the day he got drafted here, and I think the organization and even the team love him and we're going to continue supporting him."
So what did Cromartie think of Holmes' reaction at practice? The cornerback reflected that it must be hard for Holmes to be on the sideline for so long, but then he cracked: "Somebody's gotta have some fire on that side of the ball."

QuoteSantonio Holmes might start N.Y. Jets camp on PUP list

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes was noncommittal in December when asked if he would be ready to return from his Lisfranc injury by training camp. Fast forward six months, and coach Rex Ryan is equally noncommittal about his No. 1 receiver's status.

"He's doing a decent job but we'll see how he is in training camp," Ryan said via, the New York Daily News. "There's a possibility he starts out on the PUP (list), I'm not sure, but he seems to be doing well."
After originally undergoing surgery in October to repair the fracture, Holmes needed another procedure in February to remove plates from his foot. Lisfranc injuries are infamous for lingering, especially for skill-position players who must display the ability to cut sharply.
If not for the injury and a bloated $7.5 million salary, Holmes would be among the NFL's prime trade candidates this summer. Holmes is set to count $10.75 million against the Jets' 2014 salary cap. The Jets won't keep him around at that price -- and perhaps at any price after playing a key role in the team's media circus and locker-room rifts of the past two years.

QuoteCalvin Pace: Darrelle Revis trade 'disheartening'
By Marc Sessler
Around the League Writer

New York Jets linebacker Calvin Pace has yet to warm up to the trade that sent All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a pair of draft picks.
"I was disappointed," Pace told the New York Post on Thursday. "I consider Revis a friend since the day I got here, and I watched him grow into what I feel is the best corner in the NFL. To not have that, it was kind of disheartening.
"But that's the way of our business: You see them go and you wish them well. I just hope he doesn't have a good game against us Week 1. It's a good situation for him. I'm sad to see him go but happy for him."
Pace bemoaned the roster turnover that included aging veterans, such as Bart Scott, being sent packing, but the Revis trade seemed imminent from early on.
"The truth is ... when stuff is leaked or rumored, most times it's going to happen," Pace said. " ... I'm not going to sit here and put pressure on (rookie) Sheldon (Richardson) or anybody else. ... The jury is out on how our side of the deal worked out."

Pace isn't alone in his thinking. Trading away the best player on your roster -- and arguably in franchise history -- is a decision that might haunt the Jets deep into the future.
General manager John Idzik will be judged on how the trade maps out over time, but that's missing the point. It was owner Woody Johnson who didn't want to pay what it would take to keep Revis around, and it should be Johnson who hears it from fans if Revis goes on to future glory.
