The connection that Hernandez and quarterback Dennis SanSoucie enjoyed on the field reportedly extended off of it: The two engaged in a sexual relationship that they attempted to keep hidden, SanSoucie told the Boston Globe.

Hernandez, who was convicted of murdering Odin Lloyd in 2013, killed himself in his prison cell in 2017.

In a new, revealing interview, the late Aaron Hernandez's brother, Jonathan Hernandez, claimed their father abused Aaron because of his hidden sexuality.

Aaron - who played for the Patriots from 2010-2012 - committed suicide while in prison in MA in 2017.

Hernandez, who played in the National Football League from 2010-2012, was found at autopsy to have had what researchers said was one of the most advanced cases of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the degenerative nerve disease that has been linked to subconcussive head injuries, they had encountered in a person his age. Hernandez was found not guilty in a double murder case the week before his suicide.

"I remember he wanted to be a cheerleader". "And (my dad's) response was, 'Call them.' And he handed me the phone, and he said, 'I'm going to beat you even harder, you and your brother, and they're going to have to pull me off of you when they knock down the door'".

Jonathan also revealed that his father used anti-gay slurs around the house.

Their father, Dennis, died during Aaron's junior year of high school.

In addition to spending a good deal of time together smoking marijuana (both before and after games), Hernandez and SanSoucie had a "now-and-then sexual relationship". "We didn't want people to know".

Dennis, according to the report, "had concerns that Aaron, as a boy, had a feminine way about him".

The story of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has just received another dark, complex and tragic element added to its many layers. SanSoucie said they kept the relationship secret as Hernandez's father was homophobic.
