That's certainly pretty terrifying now in hindsight, but at the time, Rapoport played it off.

"I sort of laughed a little bit," Rapoport said. "And I said, 'Don't worry, I got you, I'll take care of you.'"

Rapoport said there was another reporter, CBS Sports' William Bendetson, with him at the time.

"The first text I got after it became clear that Hernandez was the suspect in the murder investigation was from William Bendetson, who was like, 'Hey remember that day in the locker room?,'" Rapoport said.

At the time of his suicide, Hernandez was serving a life sentence without the chance of parole for the murder of Odin Lloyd.
