    (NECN) – “Sports Illustrated” is reporting Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey was handed a subpoena tied to the Aaron Hernandez case.

    Pouncey was served less than an hour after the Patriots beat the Dolphins at Gillette Stadium.

    A source with knowledge of the matter told “Sports Illustrated” the subpoena is related to Hernandez's potential involvement in interstate gun trafficking.

    Pouncey is a close friend of Hernandez and a former teammate at the University of Florida.

    Pouncey's twin brother Maurkice plays for the Steelers, who are coming to Foxboro next Sunday.

    A subpoena does not mean Pouncey is charged with or will be charged with a crime.  

    NECN has not been able to independently confirm the “Sports Illustrated” report.
