While his brother Mike has avoided the topic Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey has again apologized for wearing a “Free Hernandez” hat.

Maurkice apologized on Twitter shortly after he was photographed wearing a hat supporting his former college teammate Aaron Hernandez who is now charged with murder.

And upon reporting to Steelers camp Maurkice said again he made a mistake in judgment.

“I understand it was a serious situation and I apologize if I offended anyone” he said via Ralph Paulk of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I’m here to play football and let’s move off from that.

“I know I took a lot of heat for it and I probably should have. I understand what happened. It’s pretty cool now and I’ll let things blow away.”

So far Dolphins center Mike hasn’t followed suit but Maurkice indicated that might not have been his call.
