Prosecutors believe Aaron Hernandez's 2015 prison phone conversations with NFL star Mike Pouncey could help prove Aaron murdered two people in 2012. TMZ Sports has obtained court docs in which prosecutors are asking the judge in the case to admit transcripts of the phone calls as evidence in Aaron's double murder trial. Essentially, prosecutors believe the calls show Hernandez uses the word "try" as a way to describe being disrespected ... and talks to Pouncey about how he responds when someone "tries" him. Officials say Hernandez felt the victims in the homicide case were "trying" him before he shot them to death later that night. The first phone call with Pouncey went down on April 3, 2015:
Following the unexpected retirement of linebacker Zach Orr, the Baltimore Ravens are looking elsewhere to fill their roster out with another pass rusher. Apparently their answer may be just up I-95. The Philadelphia Eagles perhaps are looking to part ways with veteran linebacker Connor Barwin since their defense has switched to a 4-3 scheme. One of the teams looking at Barwin, is none other than the Ravens. As an eight-year veteran, Barwin has split his time with both the Eagles and the Houston Texans. In his career he has 240 total tackles and 49.5 sacks and was consistently getting over 40 a season until he was moved to defensive end last year when Philadelphia switched defensive fronts.
The Eagles sure could use a wide receiver, and DeSean Jackson is a free agent. Jackson even said it himself in an interview that ran on Tuesday: a reunion with the Eagles would be a good story. Or perhaps a story that's almost too good to be true. Don't get me wrong, Jackson could very well wind up back in an Eagles uniform once everything is said and done. He can become a free agent in March. There's an obvious need at wide receiver. Jackson never wanted to leave Philadelphia in the first place, and the person responsible for that — Chip Kelly — is long gone. It makes perfect sense. So much sense, Jackson can use what is considered common knowledge around the NFL for leverage in contract negotiations
