NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. - A man arrested in Connecticut in connection with the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with a weapons count, and investigators said a third suspect was arrested yesterday in south Florida. Massachusetts State Police said local officers in Miramar, Fla., captured Ernest Wallace early yesterday afternoon, hours after a Connecticut judge ordered Carlos Ortiz turned over to Massachusetts authorities. New Britain State's attorney said 27-year-old Ortiz was arrested in Bristol on Wednesday as part of the investigation into the slaying of Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

In trying to make sense of the Aaron Hernandez case, people seem to overlook the obvious explanation. The guy appears to be a violent jerk. That would answer the $40 million question of why a man with so much at stake would allegedly get involved in something as senselessly evil as a cold-blooded murder. All the other straws you can grasp at - hip-hop culture, gang membership, bad influences - seem insignificant by comparison. Take a bad guy, cloak him in the sense of privilege that comes with being a big-time athlete in this country, and it shouldn't be surprising when bad things happen.

BRUCE FELDMAN tapped out a troubling tweet yesterday. "Spoke w longtime NFL personnel man who said in wake of Aaron Hernandez teams may use police experts to check prospects tattoos," wrote the CBS Sports columnist/commentator. Hernandez is the former Patriots tight end who is charged with murder. He has tattoos everywhere, including his arms, hands, chest, stomach and back. Authorities evaluated the tats to see if any were gang-related and came away empty. Yet, if Feldman's tweet is to be believed, the league is still considering hiring someone to snoop out gang-ink on its players.

The Browns signed rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo, the No. 6 overall pick in this year's draft, to a four-year contract. The deal also contains a fifth-year club option. Mingo's agent, Jeff Guerriero, finalized the $16 million package with the Browns early Sunday. Mingo had been the team's only unsigned rookie as the sides battled over "offset" language.   Injury lists Dolphins top draft pick Dion Jordan is sitting out the start of training camp because his surgically repaired right shoulder has not fully healed, and he has been placed on the non-football injury list.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots rolled over Houston, 42-14, on Monday night, stamping themselves once again as the team to fear in the AFC - and making the Texans look like pretenders. Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns and 296 yards as New England manhandled the team with the league's best record. The Patriots (10-3), who already own the AFC East title, won their seventh straight and moved one game behind the Texans (11-2) for the conference's top seed. When Brady hit Aaron Hernandez for a 7-yard score 9 minutes, 27 seconds in, that gave the quarterback 45 consecutive games with a TD pass, the third-longest streak in NFL history.

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. - Police again searched the area near the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, a week after his friend's body was found about a mile away.

His relatives said he was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee, that the two men were friends and that both men were out together on the last night of Lloyd's life.

NEWS broke yesterday that Aaron Hernandez is featured in a University of Florida 2014 football calendar. Which seems appropriate because the tight end has nothing but time on his hands as he sits in a Massachusetts jail awaiting two trials for allegedly murdering three men. Hernandez was charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd in June 2013. After his arrest, he also was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the 2012 drive-by shooting of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

It is impossible to analyze the Eagles' decision to release DeSean Jackson without the requisite context, and that context is Aaron Hernandez. This is not to say that whatever Jackson did to warrant dismissal in the eyes of Jeffrey Lurie, Chip Kelly, and Howie Roseman is morally or legally equivalent to the first-degree murder charges that Hernandez faces. The reasons that the Eagles released Jackson vary, depending on which source is providing what reason, and they are aligned in a diverse array: on-field reasons and off-field reasons, gang ties reported in an explosive NJ.com story Friday, his general demeanor and work ethic and their impact on the younger players on the team, a mysterious burglary of Jackson's home in January that still has no suspects, Kelly's belief that he can find another receiver to match Jackson's production within the Eagles' offense.

TIME FOR a Herb Magee update. Magee's Philadelphia University basketball squad lost to Boston College, 67-50, Sunday. BC is coached by Steve Donahue, who was once an assistant under Magee at Philly U, a Division II school. BC is Division I, so the game was an exhibition for Magee and did not count against his overall record. The Eagles, however, got a win, but the game didn't count in their RPI. Got all that? Magee still has a two-game lead over Duke's Mike Krzyzewski as the all-time winningest NCAA men's basketball coach.

DENNIS RODMAN landed in China on Saturday after a 4-day visit with his buddy Kim Jong Un, the nutty dictator of North Korea. It was the second time the ex-NBA player had visited with Kim. This time, he and Kim spent time swilling Rodman's newly launched "Bad Boy Vodka. " Just what the world needs, two worms boozing it up in a country that has nuclear weapons. We're lucky we're all still here. Before the trip, there was some chatter about Rodman asking Kim to release Christian missionary Kenneth Bae, a U.S. citizen who is serving a 15-year jail sentence in North Korea for allegedly plotting against the government.

Tim Tebow smiled and said nothing. The New England Patriots quarterback wasn't going to discuss the imbroglio involving a certain Eagles wide receiver, even if that Eagle was his former roommate at Florida, even if the two were close enough to pillow-fight each other in the apartment they shared. Coach Bill Belichick passed, too. Running back LeGarrette Blount didn't want to touch the issue. The Patriots practiced Tuesday with the Eagles, as they will for the next two days leading up to the teams' preseason game Friday.

WHEN NEW England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with first degree murder this summer, shock waves echoed through NFL personnel offices. Teams across the league knew that they easily could have been the Patriots, dealing with questions about whether they'd harbored or even enabled a killer in their locker room. As New England comes to Philadelphia tomorrow for 3 days of practice with the Eagles heading into Friday's preseason opener, it seems likely the Hernandez horror will haunt one of the NFL's showcase franchises for a long time.

A grim-faced coach Bill Belichick said in Foxborough, Mass., on Wednesday that the New England Patriots will learn from the "terrible experience" of Aaron Hernandez's arrest on a murder charge and work to improve their player evaluation process. Speaking publicly for the first time since the then-Patriots tight end was arrested four weeks earlier, Belichick, who opened his 22-minute news conference by speaking from prepared notes, said he was "shocked and disappointed" to learn of the criminal investigation while he was out of the country.
