Once a strength, TE now question mark for Pats ... Tebow? 

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots seemed set for years with a young, record-breaking tight end combination.

Aaron Hernandez ran around defenders after making catches. Rob Gronkowski ran over them. They were stars before they were 23. It was one position coach Bill Belichick could rely on, but not anymore.

Hernandez was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder. He was released by the Patriots. Gronkowski is recovering from back surgery, his fifth operation since he broke his forearm in November, and may not be ready for the start of the season.

One possibility at tight end might be Tim Tebow. The Patriots signed the quarterback on June 11 and he has the size and speed to play tight end. Belichick hasn’t said what role Tebow will fill.

 

Judge named in Paterno family’s lawsuit vs. NCAA 

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A judge was appointed Thursday to preside over the lawsuit filed by former Penn State coach Joe Paterno’s family against the NCAA over penalties imposed by the organization for the school’s handling of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Senior Judge John B. Leete from the state’s rural northern tier was named to hear the case.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald Castille assigned Leete nearly a month after Centre County’s president judge requested an out-of-county jurist.

The lawsuit argues that college sports’ governing body bypassed its own rules in taking action against Penn State. The penalties include a four-year postseason ban and a $60 million fine. Paterno died early last year.
