NFL Notebook: Police search near home again

The Associated Press

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. - Police again searched the area near the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, a week after his friend's body was found about a mile away.

Some police officers wore wetsuits Monday while searching woods near Hernandez's home, not far from the industrial park where Odin Lloyd's body was found.

Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits, was found slain June 17. His relatives said he was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee, that the two men were friends and that both men were out together on the last night of Lloyd's life.

An Attleboro District Court official said no new documents were available in connection with the case Monday morning. The Bristol County district attorney's office also didn't release any new information about the case, which their spokeswoman called "an active, ongoing investigation."

A court official said last week that three search warrants had been issued, but none of them had been returned, meaning they weren't yet public.

Hernandez hasn't commented on the homicide investigation, but has been seen with his lawyer.

The Patriots drafted Hernandez, who is originally from Bristol, Conn., out of the University of Florida in 2010. Last summer, the team gave him a five-year contract worth $40 million.

BILLS: Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly said he has been told by doctors that he won't need to undergo chemotherapy or radiation treatment after having surgery to remove cancerous cells in his jaw.

SUSPENSIONS: Receiver LaVon Brazill of the Colts was suspended by the NFL for four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Free-agent wide receiver Brandon Collins of the Giants was suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

LIONS: Detroit signed safety Chris Hope and released wide receiver Brian Robiskie.

Hope started 113 of 163 games and had 20 career interceptions over 11 seasons with Pittsburgh, Tennessee and Atlanta. He started in four games last season for the Falcons.

The Lions added Hope because they're not sure safety Louis Delmas can stay healthy enough to be counted on next season.
