Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who’s facing three charges of murder, was relocated to the Nashua Street Jail in Boston three months ago where he has a new privilege, according to the Boston Herald. He’s allowed to watch his old team play on Sundays.

"He’s doing fine," Suffolk sheriff Steven Tompkins told the Herald. "No problems, no complaints, so I think everything’s working out right. He can probably watch the Patriots games."

For security reasons Hernandez was previously subject to 21 hours of confinement in a cell — and no Patriots games — at the Bristol House of Correction.
