Take a look back at the weekend in sports with analysis from SiriusXM’s sports team and interviews with national sports stars.

Former New England Patriots counsel Jack Mula spoke about Aaron Hernandez on The End Zone with Zig Fracassi and Howard Balzer. Mula talked about what money the Patriots can recoup from Hernandez, and the risks teams take when they offer players long-term contracts.

Former NFL wide receiver Derrick Mason spoke about the death of Steve McNair four years later on Press Pass with Ralph Vacchiano and Gil Brandt. Mason said he still thinks to himself, “What if [McNair] was still here,” and suggested the former Tennessee Titan could have played quarterback in any NFL era.

Matt Kenseth talked with Claire B. Lang of SiriusXM NASCAR Radio after winning the Quaker State 400 on Saturday in Kentucky, his fourth victory of the season.

Jeff Mans of Fantasy Alarm had the ultimate “I told you so!” moment. Mans reminded listeners that they should have been cautious with New York Mets starting pitcher Zack Wheeler, who was roughed up this weekend in his MLB debut. Mans also reiterated that he feels the ceiling for Wheeler in the majors is as a No. 3 starter, not a staff ace.
