Lawsuit alleges Aaron Hernandez shot man in Florida

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Not a locker room cancer, please. This is the same guy the week after he was drafted, wanted to fight Wes Welker because Welker told him to figure out the tap machine on his own "rook"...

Normally there is.

However Teams could put that into their contracts just to double up (per sey)

Section 9 of the CBA address this even though it is not in his specific contract.

Essentially as I read it, Section 9 which covers Forfeiture of Salary section (a) breach - when Hernanadez fails to report for anything due to "conduct by him due to incarceration" he may be required to forfeit signing bonus, roster bonus, option bonus and or option bonus but not salary for each year he does not show. His salary is forfeited on a % basis for the remaining years.

Now forfeit in this means not receive.. What ever he already has he keeps, and what ever he has kept is a Cap hit for the Pats.

http://nfllabor.files.wordpress.com/...-2011-2020.pdf

Because the release of Hernandez occurs after June 1, the cap hit will be spread over the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Here's the annual breakdown:
2013: If the base salary guarantees in the contract do void, Hernandez will have a $2.632 million cap figure, a cap savings of $1.441 million for the Patriots. If the base salary guarantees $1.323 million in 2013 and $1.137 million in 2014 do not void, Hernandez will count $5.092 million against this year's cap, an increase of $1.019 million.
2014: The final three years of signing bonus proration $7.5 million are scheduled to accelerate onto the team's 2014 cap.
Y! SPORTS

But here is the dirty...

Had the Patriots not booted him they could have claimed a heck of a lot of money due to section 9 through out the years... Claimed it and not had it count against the Cap...

When they booted him they closed the door on that and his bonus was accelerated.. Just like the Denver fiasco with Dumervil.

NFL signing bonuses, roster bonuses and option bonuses are subject to forfeiture. And, according to Article 4, Section 9 of the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement, a player who is "unavailable to the team due to conduct by him that results in his incarceration" has committed a "forfeitable breach" and may be required to forfeit the signing bonus (or roster bonus, option bonus, reporting bonus) for each year that a breach occurs. If Hernandez is convicted of a crime and serves time, and had the Patriots retained his rights for the duration of his incarceration, the Patriots would have a much clearer path to recoup the $10.05 million in bonus money.
