Things are not looking up for Aaron Hernandez. The former Patriots tight end has been held in prison for a lengthy amount of time now and recently pled not guilty to double murder charges.
Now he's apparently dealing with a lack of funds to pay his attorneys. Fox Sports reported Friday that Hernandez' lawyers, Charles Rankin and James Sultan, filed documents indicating they might discontinue their representation of Hernandez.
The lawyers indicated their involvement with the latest Hernandez case was "limited to arraignment only and related proceedings."
Perhaps the biggest obstacle for Hernandez? What the newest charges represent for him in terms of holding onto money received from the Patriots.
The Pats could seek to obtain additional cap space as well as money from Hernandez; whether they're able to get it is another story, but Hernandez is clearly dealing with mounting legal bills.
"The defendant is in the process of seeking to make financial arrangements to retain counsel," the lawyers added.
