Aaron Hernandez’s former New England Patriots teammates described his behavior during his last season with the team as erratic and troubling, according to an investigative series by The Boston Globe.

Brandon Lloyd recalled that Hernandez said he would “f— up” fellow receiver Wes Welker during 2012 training camp, after Welker had teased the tight end about needing help in the film room, according to the report.
Welker even offered a warning to Lloyd.
The comments by Lloyd and others, as well as text messages obtained by The Globe’s Spotlight team for a six-part series, are the first extensive views from teammates of the troubled Hernandez in his last season with the team in 2012.

Hernandez would eventually be convicted for the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd. He killed himself in prison last year. Sounds like all the warning signs were there.
