The Boston Herald reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/1iMxSHG ) attorney William Kennedy added the Patriots and the team owner's company as co-defendants in a $6 million lawsuit for the estates of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in their 2012 slayings.
A Patriots spokesman has declined to comment.
Kennedy also seeks to freeze Hernandez's assets, which his attorney opposes.
Similar steps were taken in a lawsuit by the family of semi-pro football player Odin (OH'-dihn) Lloyd, whom Hernandez denied killing in 2013. The Patriots have agreed in that case to notify the court before paying Hernandez.
The Patriots released Hernandez last year.
