Well in case you guessed Tom Brady, you were WRONG! The winner for most requested replacement was 5-time Pro Bowler Vince Wilfork. The New England Patriots swapped out more than 2,500 Aaron Hernandez jerseys for free in Foxboro this weekend.
A rep for the Patriots says that the team happily spent roughly $250,000 to make sure any fan who had a Aaron Hernandez jersey could get a free replacement featuring a Patriots player who’s not currently facing murder charges. Out of the 2,500 people that arrived at the stadium for the swap, 30% were children requesting new youth jerseys.
Vince Wilfork, the 325 pound defensive tackle was the #1 most requested replacement jersey, with Tom Brady coming in 2nd place. Tim Tebow was NOT even in the top 5.
Would you have swapped your Hernandez jersey? If so, to which player?
