Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez dead after hanging himself in pirson cell
On the day he signed his $40 million contract, a gleeful, proud Hernandez said he was "set for life, a good life".
Hernandez's death came hours before his former teammates visited the White House to celebrate their historic Super Bowl victory.
College football star at 17.
The former New England Patriots player was found hanged in his prison cell Wednesday.
Dead in apparent suicide at 27.
Stay tuned for more details as this story is developing.
Hernandez leaves behind his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, and their 4-year-old daughter, Avielle. Those close to him told the Boston Globe in 2013 that Hernandez was racked by grief when his father died in 2006 from complications after a routine hernia surgery. The figures don't detail the failed drug tests in college, or all the coaches who were anxious about his "off the field activities", but turned their heads because Hernandez was such a football talent.
The decision came nearly exactly two years after the former New England Patriots tight end was sentenced to life in prison without parole for murdering Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player in June 2013.

Ryan McDonagh created the entire goal with a ridiculous feed from the blue line, and caught Nash in stride for the easy tap in. For their part, the Canadiens jumped from 22.73 hits per night during the season to 45.66 in the first-round matchup.
Once one of the best paid players in the NFL, Hernandez was found unconscious in his cell at around 3am local time on Wednesday.
Hernandez was convicted of first-degree murder in the 2013 death of Odin Lloyd. But doing so misses the point. This is a service for people who may be thinking about suicide, or those who are concerned about family or friends.
His friend says he'll remember Hernandez as a happy, goofy man who was always trying to make people laugh.
"You could piggyback off that criminal conviction to get to the place where you're only litigating damages", Cavallaro said.
Those close to Aaron Hernandez are beyond surprised by the news that he took his own life. Currently, investigators are said to be looking at the possibility Hernandez smoked synthetic marijuana before taking his own life. If we don't turn our heads.
Monroe, a graphic designer, said Hernandez's temperament stayed even-keeled throughout the two-month trial, where prosecutors fingered him as the triggerman who killed the Cape Verdean men following a nightclub dispute.
Palestinian prisoners go on mass hunger strike

Browns have zeroed in on choice with No. 1 draft pick
If Hue Jackson and company can't go back up and get Trubisky, rolling the dice on Kizer could be a wise gamble to start off Day 2. Garrett can be a franchise-changing selection, even current Browns players realize (and are excited) about that possibility.
