Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey put out a tweet on Monday, apologizing after pictures showed up online Monday with his and twin brother Mike Pouncey of the Dolphins, wearing a hat that said “Free Hernandez” – showing support of murder suspect Aaron Hernandez, their one-time college teammate at Florida.

Here’s the entire quote – “I fully recognize the seriousness of the situation involving my former teammate, and I regret that my actions appear to make light of that serious situation. I apologize to anyone who was offended by my actions.”

The former Patriots TE Hernandez has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd last month.
