Photos of Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey wearing caps that read "Free Hernandez" while at a nightclub surfaced on the internet Sunday.
ESPN reported Monday that their teams want to have a talk with them about the photos.
The Pouncey twins played with former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez at the University of Florida. Hernandez was released from the Patriots in June after being charged with murdering 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.
The Steelers are not publicly commenting about the photos, but ESPN reported that a source said the team plans to meet with Maurkice Pouncey. ESPN also cited a source close to Mike Pouncey who said the Dolphins are expected to meet with him.
The brothers were with Hernandez at a club the night of a 2007 shooting that wounded two people. Hernandez was questioned by police about the shooting.
