Bradley and Hernandez were once close friends.
Jonathan "DJ" Hernandez is expected to testify in the double murder trial of his younger brother, Aaron Hernandez.
"There was no conversation", Crawford said.
Deonte Thompson, a receiver for the Chicago Bears who played college football with Hernandez, made that remark after prosecutor Mark Lee asked him to describe their relationship at the University of Florida.
Bradley said he was in the driver's seat when Hernandez allegedly shot and killed Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after one of them accidentally spilled his drink at a Boston nightclub in July 2012.
Prosecutors say Hernandez, Bradley, Crawford, and two other men went to Tootsie's, a Miami-area strip club, on the night of February 12. Hernandez will testify on Tuesday, March 28.
"My memory wasn't really clear", Crawford said on Tuesday.
Once there, he realized he left his phone in the SUV the group had taken to Tootsie's. Also testifying were Tyrone Crawford and Oscar Hernandez Jr.More news: Drying out Wednesday, another system arrives Thursday night
Bradley added, "I was trying to figure out how I could testify without getting [Hernandez] criminally [charged]".
'Now you sure once I withdraw this lawsuit I wont be held on perjury after I tell the truth about me not recalling anything about who shot me, ' Bradley asked Robert Pickering.
Testimony resumed Monday after a long weekend for the jury. He said Crawford never indicated before Tuesday that he may have been blending nights together.
The former New England Patriots tight end faces several other separate charges, including the unlawful possession of a firearm outside the home and intimidation of a witness.
Hernandez showed a brief smile when Thompson first pointed him out in court.
The Florida shooting of Alexander Bradley, an ex-friend of Aaron Hernandez, was again the focus of testimony Tuesday morning.
The former Patriots star is already sentenced to life without the possibility of parole when he was convicted almost two years ago in another murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. The state's highest court will automatically review his first-degree murder conviction in that case at a later date.
