The New England Patriots want nothing to do with Aaron Hernandez — and it appears neither do Pats fans.

The Patriots held a Hernandez jersey exchange at Gillette Stadium over the weekend — giving fans the chance to trade in their #81 and #85 jerseys.

Pats fans turned out in droves and exchanged more than 1,200 shirts bearing the Hernandez name for jerseys with Wilfork, Brady, Jones and Ridley on the back.

The Patriots say the jerseys will be recycled or destroyed.

Pats spokesperson Stacey James told the Hartford Courant the team is trying to find a vendor with “a creative way, from recycling purposes, to utilize the materials and fabric.”

Put on your creative hat — what would you do with all of the Aaron Hernandez jerseys that were turned in this weekend?
