Ex-New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez just took the witness stand for the first time in his high-profile murder case ... and told the court he's not mentally ill.

During the hearing, the judge peppered Hernandez with a barrage of questions about his overall health and mental state. Hernandez -- who was pretty composed on the stand -- insisted he's A-OK.

Hernandez has pled not guilty to the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd

If convicted ... Hernandez faces life in prison.  When asked if he understood the gravity of the situation, Hernandez told the judge he got it.

Maybe the prison system can start a pro sports team wing of the prison. Or by the looks of it we could have some pretty good jail foot ball games. We probably have enough players in jail to make a team

I hope he's not guilty. He's too sexy to be a killer.

Seems lucid to me. If found guilty, the guy threw away one helluva future.

"Do you have any mental illnesses?"

"Unless killing people is a mental illness, no I don't have any.'

Damn! Talk about a reversal of fortune! This guy went from the top of the heap, to a potential sentence of life in prison without parole. How sad!

What an idiot. Being mentally ill is about the only way he'd get off easier in this case. I'm not sure if he can face the death penalty where he's going on trial but I'm sure he'll at least get life.
