 HOUSTON (CBS Houston) After parting ways with tight end Aaron Hernandez on Wednesday, the New England Patriots announced that they have stopped offering his No. 81 jersey for sale on their website as well as within their team store, located in Gillette Stadium. Hernandez was arrested and charged with the murder of a semi-pro athlete on Wednesday.

On Friday, the New England Patriots stated that fans who purchased Hernandez’ former No. 81 jersey, from either the Reebok or Nike retail team’s pro shop at Gillette Stadium or through the team’s website, will have both July 6th and 7th to exchange the jersey for another Patriots jersey of comparable value.

The jersey exchange will take place at the Patriots ProShop from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET.

Hernandez was taken from his home in handcuffs Wednesday morning and formerly charged with murder.

In addition to the murder charge, Hernandez also faces weapons counts in connection with the slaying of Odin Lloyd who was found dead in an industrial park in North Attleborough, on the Rhode Island line, not far from where the Patriots play. Click here to read more.
