The New England Patriots have become the first NFL team to offer a jersey rebate. Here's how it is going to work.

If you are on the Patriots e-mail fan list, check your e-mail today, because you received the 'Jersey Guarantee'.

If a jersey was purchased from either the stadium store or from the team website, and the player whose name on the back of the jersey leaves the team within a year of purchase, you will get a 25 percent discount toward the price of the next Patriots jersey that they buy.

The big news last season was when the Patriots allowed fans who had bought an Aaron Hernandez jersey, who was charged with murder, to exchange it for the jersey of another player. Over 1,200 people took the offer.
