Mike Pouncey declines to talk about hat

Dolphins center Mike Pouncey is not talking about a "Free Hernandez" he and his brother were recently wearing at a nightclub. The hats were in reference to former Florida Gators teammate Aaron Hernandez, who was recently charged with the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Miami reporters peppered Pouncey with questions on the hat, to which he declined to answer.

"I'm just here to focus on football," Pouncey told reporters. "It's training camp right now, so we're just here to focus on football."

Pouncey's twin brother, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, issued an apology a week ago on twitter after a photo surfaced with the two wearing the hats.

"I fully recognize the seriousness of the situation involving my former teammate, and I regret that my actions appear to make light of that serious situation," Maurkice Pouncey wrote. "I apologize to anyone who was offended by my actions."
