The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, removed a photo of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.
The photo of Hernandez, who was charged with the killing of 27-year-old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, was the subject of complaints from visitors.
"In the spirit of good taste we thought we'd take it down," said Joe Horrigan, vice president of communication and exhibits for the Hall of Fame.
The photo depicts Hernandez running into the end zone during a game against the Green Bay Packers in 2010. It was the winner of an annual Hall of Fame photo contest.
The Patriots released Hernandez after he was arrested in June.
