(NECN: Kathryn Sotnik) - Aaron Hernandez's defense team has subpoenaed the New England Patriots for Hernandez's "record of employment" from 2010 through 2013.

Specifically, according to the court filing, his attorneys say they want Hernandez's psychological testing, medication records, X-Rays, CT-Scans, drug/alcohol abuse related records, scouting reports, and other investigative reports.

In Bristol County Superior Court Monday, Hernandez's defense team said they heard "silence" when they first asked the Patriots for the information.

The filing alleges the Patriots maintained "extensive records" of Hernandez, who was a former tight end with the team.

They say their request is not intended as a "fishing expedition," and that they want the information within 30 days.

The filing also shows Hernandez signed off on the release of information from the Patriots, with the exception of HIV/STD information.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the murders of three men, Odin Lloyd, Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

He's currently awaiting trial behind bars.

An immediate comment from the Patriots was not available Tuesday.
