(NBC) -- In the wake of the ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez case came news that authorities were taking into consideration his tattoos for evidence of gang connections. This is standard practice when putting inmates in jail.
According to an article on NBC Sports
, the NFL might be considering evaluating prospective players' tattoos for evidence of gang connections. The examinations presumably would happen at the Scouting Combine.
The article goes on to say that five years ago, the NFL hired experts to study on-field celebrations in order to determine whether players were displaying gang signs.
