Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey was served with a grand jury subpoena by the state of Massachusetts following his team's 27-17 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday, according to Pete Thamel and Greg Bedard of Sports Illustrated.
The subpoena was issued as part of the investigation into Aaron Hernandez and his potential involvement in interstate gun trafficking. The fact that Pouncey was served papers does not mean that he is being charged with a crime, just that he is viewed as a witness who could strengthen authorities' case against Hernandez.
Hernandez was indicted on murder charges in August in connection with the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Pouncey and Hernandez played with one another at the University of Florda. He was also seen wearing a "Free Hernandez" hat back in mid-July.
Pouncey and the Dolphins both declined comment on the incident on Sunday, and Pouncey traveled home with the team.
