PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey has apologized for wearing a baseball cap supporting former college teammate Aaron Hernandez.
Pouncey and his twin brother Mike, a center for the Miami Dolphins, were photographed wearing hats that read ``Free Hernandez'' during their co-birthday party in Miami on Saturday night.
Hernandez played at the University of Florida with the Pounceys from 2007-09. The former New England Patriots tight end is charged with murder in the killing of Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.
Maurkice Pouncey posted on his Twitter account Monday he understands the ``seriousness of the situation involving my former teammate.'' Pouncey added he regrets making light of the situation and apologized if he offended anyone.
The Steelers had no immediate comment.
