Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell on Wednesday morning, where he was serving a life sentence for 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, just days after being acquitted in a separate double murder case in Boston.

Hernandez, who was sentenced to life without parole, was found in his cell hung by a bed sheet shortly after 3 a.m. and pronounced dead an hour later at a hospital. 

After the news broke on Hernandez's death, current and former NFL players shared their reactions on Twitter.

Hernandez was 27.
