Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez had one of the most severe cases of CTE researchers have encountered in someone his age, his lawyer said Thursday.
Boston University’s center for the study of chronic traumatic encephalopathy announced Thursday that a study of Hernandez’s brain indicated he had Stage 3 CTE, one step short of the most severe level. The 27-year-old killed himself in prison in April while serving a life sentence for murder.

Attorney Jose Baez said he is filing a federal lawsuit against the NFL and the Patriots on behalf of Hernandez’s daughter. According to the lawsuit, Stage 3 CTE is most commonly found in patients with a median age of 67.
Tom Brady led the Patriots 75 yards into the end zone over the final minutes Sunday — the 52nd time he has orchestrated a game-winning drive.
I suspect Detroit would have had enough time to spike the ball, but on fourth down, that wasn’t an option. The Lions would have needed to call and run a play on the fly, and unless Cooter sent in a playcall for fourth down before the snap on third down, there wouldn’t have been enough time for Stafford to communicate the playcall.
There was some drama before the concluding moments of the game were played out by runoff. The final Lions drive crammed 15 plays into 153 seconds. Stafford appeared to hit Marvin Jones on the 2-yard line with 1:10 to go, only for his pass to be wiped out by a penalty on Kerin. Jones committed offensive pass interference on the next play to make it first-and-30, but a Stafford interception on second down was wiped off the board by a holding penalty on star Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant. Four plays later, Trufant was called for pass interference in the end zone on a play where he clearly contacted Jones, but on a pass that did not seem catchable on replay.
