Mike Pouncey and Maurkice Pouncey are apparently firm believers in “innocent until proven guilty.”

The identical twin centers were spotted wearing “Free Hernandez” hats at a nightclub. Mike and Maurkice, who play for the Dolphins and Steelers, respectively, were teammates with Aaron Hernandez at the University of Florida. Mike was Hernandez’s roommate in Gainesville.

Both Pouncey brothers were spotted with Hernandez on the night of a 2007 shooting in Gainesville, according to ESPN.com. Hernandez was originally pegged as the shooter, until his name was rescinded.

Maurkice was taken No. 18 overall by Pittsburgh in the 2010 NFL draft. He’s a three-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowler. Mike was drafted No. 15 overall by Miami in the 2011 NFL draft.

Hernandez is currently being held in Bristol County Correctional Facility after being charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd. Check out the Pounceys’ controversial hat choices in the photo below.
