    Aaron Hernandez once seemingly threatened reporter Ian Rapoport with murder

    The Aaron Hernandez story came to a tragic end earlier this week when the former star tight end of the New England Patriots was found hanging in his prison cell in what has since been ruled a suicide.

Just ask NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, who was a Patriots beat writer back in 2010 when Hernandez was drafted by the Pats.
