Washington Post: Aaron Hernandez Was Heavy Drug User on Verge of Being Cut By Patriots, Rolling Stone Reports

The New England Patriots may have given tight end Aaron Hernandez a big contract a year ago, but shortly before he was arrested on murder and gun charges in June, the team was ready to cut him because over "missed practices and thug-life stunts," Rolling Stone reports.

According to a synposis of the story, entitled "The Gangster in the Huddle," editor Paul Solotaroff writes that Hernandez was so paranoid from using the drug PCP (angel dust) that he carried a gun nearly all the time and, according to a synposis of the story on the website, "he surrounded himself with a cohort of gangsters, and cut himself off from his family and teammates."
Coach Bill Belichick was so "infuriated" when Hernandez missed practices that he was "one misstep from being cut."
