There are a lot of people that believe the Pouncey brothers should stay as far away from Aaron Hernandez as they can get. Not here.
Sometimes friends don’t always do the right thing and sometimes they can become someone entirely different from who we might think they are. That doesn’t mean you turn your back on them and it doesn’t mean you condone their behavior.
From the start Miami Dolphins pro-bowl center Mike Pouncey and his twin brother Maurkice have supported Aaron Hernandez as a friend. Today, the supported him a final time by attending his funeral.
Hernandez committed suicide in his prison cell last week and Pouncey took to his instagram account to say his good-bye’s. Today he made his final farewell.
While many were focused on the funeral itself it was an image of Pouncey walking with two canes that got the brunt of water cooler discussions. Pouncey missed a lot of time in 2016 due to his hip issues and it appears that he is not yet ready to resume practicing.

Due to the fact that he is an identical twin and that his brother is also hurt, social media became a debate forum over which brother the image was of. A closer look at the two brothers’ tattoos gave a better indication that the can walker was indeen Mike.
It’s unlikely that Pouncey would participate in off-season programs anyways so the news at this point means little. It does bring legitimate questions however about his future with the team. With the draft only three days away, the Dolphins could and probably should look to drafting a reliable back-up at some point during the three day even.
