BOSTON (AP) - The company that makes Muscle Milk is ending its endorsement deal with Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

Police have searched in and around Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, Mass., after a 27-year-old semi-pro football player from Boston was found dead a mile away. The district attorney's office has not said whether Hernandez will face any charges.

Benicia, Calif.-based CytoSport says in a one-sentence statement that in light of the investigation involving Hernandez, it was terminating its endorsement contract with him effective immediately.

The company, which makes Muscle Milk and other nutritional supplements for athletes, did not say how much that contract was worth or what it called for Hernandez to do.
