A Saugus sports store says it scored a whopping $18000 from gossip site TMZ for a now-infamous jailhouse letter penned by disgraced ex-Patriot and alleged murderer Aaron Hernandez.

Sportsworld Inc. manager Brendan Brennan said his store sold Hernandez’s letter to the celeb-obsessed site yesterday. In the letter written to an ex-con named “Karl” Hernandez says he’ll be acquitted of the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd and says being jailed on the murder charges has “humbled him.”

Hernandez also asks his correspondent to keep the letter off the Internet. Brennan said Sportsworld had no qualms about selling the supposedly confidential letter to the world-famous gossip site.
