In response to a Boston.com story about him failing multiple drug tests for marijuana as a collegian, Patriots’ draft pick Aaron Hernandez issued the following statement through the team Tuesday night:

“Leading up to the draft, I provided every interested NFL team with all the information asked of me about football and my personal life. I was as candid as I could possibly be about everything, including my one single violation of the team’s substance testing policy over the course of three years at the University of Florida.  That is why I was very surprised and disappointed by the recent inaccurate report of additional violations.  I regret what happened, I learned from it and will make better decisions going forward.  I couldn’t be more excited about beginning my NFL career and representing the New England Patriots well.”
