FALL RIVER, Mass. -- The New England Patriots say they'll turn over hundreds of pages of medical and other records to lawyers for former tight end Aaron Hernandez, but object to producing scouting reports and a psychological profile.

Patriots' attorney Andrew Phelan said Wednesday the team has agreed to produce 317 pages of materials sought by Hernandez's defense attorneys.

But Phelan says scouting reports are proprietary and irrelevant. He says the team has offered lawyers the option of reviewing the psychological assessment at its office.

The defense is seeking a subpoena for all records in his personnel file, saying they may contain important information about his state of mind. The judge set a July 22 hearing.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd of Boston.
