Aaron Hernandez put up good numbers in his football career, both at the University of Florida and for the New England Patriots in the NFL. However, given his current legal troubles, he may not be the best choice to be featured in a team calendar.

Hernandez wasn't arrested until summer of 2013. Maybe it wasn't possible to make a change a few months after approval, but it certainly seems like it would have been worth trying.

No matter who created the calendar, it's not a good look for anyone right now.
