EA removes Aaron Hernandez, replaces his in game award trading card with Alex Smith
 
No real story but since it involves our ultimate team player...

EA Sports, the maker of the popular video games "Madden NFL 25" and "NCAA Football 14," has opted to remove former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez from each game, a company spokesperson told CBSSports.com.

Hernandez is currently in jail in relation to six charges, including a charge for the murder of Odin Lloyd, and was released by the Patriots shortly after his arrest. NFL teams were notified that no contract for Hernandez would be approved prior to the resolution of his charges, as the NFL would need to further investigate possible league punishment for his actions.

An image of Hernandez on a card appears in "NCAA Football 14" as a Nike Skills Trainer reward for an achievement, but the company spokesperson added that the image will soon be removed.

"Because 'NCAA Football 14' was finalized prior to our decision, Hernandez's image still appears in the Nike Skills Trainer," he said. "However, he is not in the game, and anyone who unlocks that particular Nike Skills Trainer reward will receive an Alex Smith Ultimate Team player item instead. The image of Hernandez will be removed via a Title Update in the near future."

Hernandez, who starred at the University of Florida prior to being selected in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL draft, was signed to a five-year extension worth roughly $39 million by the Patriots last August.

Belcher was removed during the season in a roster update. As for Ray Lewis... I'm pretty sure he won't appear in the next Madden either.
