A man who sued Aaron Hernandez over being shot in the face in Florida testified Wednesday in the former New England Patriots player's murder trial that Hernandez thought he was being followed by helicopters and that he was paranoid about his conversations being recorded. Instead, Bradley was allowed to tell jurors about how Hernandez had said he had a difficult time trusting people, including his friends. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee. His body was found in an industrial park near Hernandez's home in North Attleborough.
Rolando McClain revived his career with a solid season in Dallas. Now the linebacker will return for at least one more year with the Cowboys. McClain, a former top 10 pick who flamed out after just three seasons in Oakland, signed a one-year contract Wednesday, the team reported on its website. His presence played a significant role in the improvement of a defense that was among the worst in NFL history in 2013.
Prosecutors in North Carolina have agreed to let the NFL see photographs from Greg Hardy's domestic violence trial as the league considers whether to suspend the defensive end who signed with Dallas last month. An order filed Wednesday in a North Carolina court grants limited access to the NFL, the players association and attorneys for Hardy. The NFL sued for access to them. ''We appreciate the District Attorney's office agreeing to make the information available to us and we look forward to the opportunity to review the photographs,'' NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.
