TMZ recently shared a letter written by former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez to a pen pal from behind bars in which he claims he's innocent and will return to the NFL. 
The letter (that stated "Keep this off social media PLEASE!") went viral a few days ago, and now the Boston Herald has learned that the huge spike in traffic for the gossip site cost them $18,000 to acquire. You can read the letter here.
Sportsworld, Inc., who originally got their hands on the letter, said they felt no obligation to honor Hernandez's request to keep the letter private. The letter was not written to them, but rather an ex-convict named Karl with whom Hernandez was corresponding with. 
Hat tip to Pro Football Talk for the find.
