Aaron Hernandez's lawyers target NFL, Riddell in new suit

(TSX / STATS) -- Lawyers for Aaron Hernandez refiled a lawsuit against the NFL and the league's helmet manufacturer in a Massachusetts state court on Monday.

The latest filing came after Hernandez's legal team dropped a federal lawsuit against the league and the New England Patriots last week, opting to pursue its case in state court because they can add more counts.

Hernandez, a former tight end for the Patriots, committed suicide in jail on April 19 while serving a life sentence for murder. Researchers at Boston University later discovered that Hernandez was dealing with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
