Seymour fined 15,000 for actions against Patriots

Richard Seymour was fined 15,000 for two offenses in last Sunday's game against the Patriots, according to ESPNBoston.com.

The defensive lineman was fined 7,500 for unnecessary roughness against Tom Brady and 7,500 for a facemask penalty against BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

"They said that they blew the whistle, but it was so loud I never heard a whistle," Seymour said regarding the unnecessary roughness penalty. "The ref said it was unnecessary roughness, but I was like, 'He wasn't down,' but they said I tried to sling him down, or whatever the case."

Report: Hernandez jurors were invited to funeral

Report: Hernandez jurors were invited to funeral

A member of the jury that acquitted Aaron Hernandez of double-murder said jurors were invited to Hernandez’s funeral by defense attorney Jose Baez, The Boston Herald reported. 

Hernandez, the former Patriots tight end who was already serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd when he was acquitted in the 2012 double-murder in Boston, killed himself in his prison cell last week. His funeral was in his hometown of Bristol, Connecticut on Monday. 

One juror told the Herald that Baez offered to pay for bus to have jury attend funeral. 

More from the Herald report: 

“I was invited, but I decided ultimately not to go,” said Robert Monroe, one of 12 jurors who on April 14 acquitted Hernandez of the murders of Cape Verdean immigrants Daniel de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28. Both were living in Dorchester.

“I received a message, if any of the jurors wanted to go to the Aaron Hernandez funeral, that [Hernandez’s attorney] Jose Baez would rent a bus to get us back and forth,” Monroe told the Herald today.
