Morris Claiborne not expected to play in the Cowboys preseason finale

"His principal nemesis at this point is likely to be the five gun charges levied against him; I think they got him dead to right on most of those," Solotaroff said. "But as crazy as it sounds, this is a guy with no priors. So asking a judge to sentence Hernandez to consecutive prison bids rather than contemporary ones is going to be a very hard sell for the prosecution. And if in fact he winds up doing three years behind [bars for] those gun charges which would be a lot in this case he's 26, 27, with very low mileage on those legs of his and a lot of time to heal up. My sources tell me there will be more than one NFL team pursuing him hotly when he walks out of jail in four years." There's a lot of supposition in that theory, but as has been noted before, a conviction of Hernandez is no sure thing . And while the Rolling Stone article has come under criticism based on its handling of Hernandez's days at the University of Florida , is it so impossible to think that another NFL team could take a chance on Hernandez if he were cleared of all but the weapons charges?
