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.

Doesn't matter if he is or not.
He's going to be the star receiver in the federal prison league, either way.

Hernandez is going to be Pats worst nightmare when he gets reinstated to the NFL, and since when did anyone give a damn about gang members killing other gang members? I thought that's what the government wants them to do.
