ESPN reports Jose Baez, the attorney for the former New England Patriots told reporters during the news conference the 27-year-old had Stage 3 CTE.

"This is the most severe case for someone of his age", Baez said, via a local Boston NBC News affiliate.

Hernandez's family, who donated the brain to Boston University to be tested for CTE-a form of brain damage that is linked to concussions and even subconcussive hits-announced shortly thereafter that they would be suing the NFL.

Researchers are only able to diagnose the disease posthumously.

Hernandez committed suicide in April while serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of his friend.

The disease is associated with "aggressiveness, impulsivity, depression, memory loss and other cognitive changes", the center said. The conversation around brain disease and the NFL has grown in recent years as a growing number of football players have developed brain injuries and neurological conditions.

A judge this year vacated that conviction, because Hernandez had not exhausted all his avenues of appeal by the time he died, a move allowed by a quirk in MA law.

"She doesn't have training in brain injuries", Baez said of Jenkins-Hernandez. Hernandez played a major role in Bill Belichick's offense in New England as one-half of a dynamic tight end duo that included Rob Gronkowski.

"Defendants were fully aware of the dangers of exposing National Football League players, such as Aaron, to repeated traumatic head impacts", the lawsuit said.

Their suit claims the NFL, as well as the Patriots, were more than aware of the severity of damage that could be done due to football.

Some of those symptoms were on display in Hernandez's short life. In April, he had been acquitted in a double murder, which took place in 2012.
