Refuse to feel sorry for overpaid celebrity athlete accused of involvement in murder having some privacy disrupted.....he can put up with it.   With his salary, he can afford to move to a hotel for a few weeks until the police come and cuff his ass.

Signing bonus:
$12.5 million
Paid in three installments -- $6 million up front, $3.25 million in March of 2013 and $3.25 million in March of 2014

Base salaries:
2012 -- $540,000
2013 -- $1.323 million
2014 -- $1.2 million
2015 -- $2.3 million
2016 -- $5 million
2017 -- $6 million
2018 -- $6 million

At this point, when looking solely at signing bonus and base salaries, Hernandez has earned $9.79 million of the extension.

There are some things money can't buy besides privacy.  Like brains, character, morals.

I read somewhere the Pats can get out of most of that.  IIRC it was a 30mil contract?  They can recoup 27mil of it.  It has Eric Wright type outs in the contract.

True enough.  If he had an argument with that guy, or the guy said something he didn't like, why not just walk away.  Now look at this mess he is in.

Examining Aaron Hernandez's New England Patriots contract


In almost all situations, when an NFL player is suspended, he forfeits all of the future guarantees in his contract. Even if a signing bonus or base salary is guaranteed for skill, injury and salary cap, a "failure to perform" or "failure to practice" clause makes those guarantees null and void.

In a surprising twist, this appears not to be the case with the five-year, $40-million extension signed by New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in August of 2012. Upon close reading of his contract language -- and after confirming the development with an expert -- the "failure to perform" or "failure to practice" clause that appears in similar Patriots extensions is not present. This means Hernandez might be able to keep nearly $2.5 million of the deal, even if legal troubles prevented him from taking the field.


This could have a serious effect on Hernandez if he is ever suspended by the Patriots or the league for his connection to an ongoing homicide investigation in North Attleboro, Mass.

Exactly what does this mean?

According to his amended contract, Hernandez is guaranteed a total of $16 million. Of that, $9.25 million in a signing bonus already has been paid, with the final $3.25 million due in March 2014.

The rest of it comes in guaranteed base salaries for the 2013 and 2014 seasons, along with $1 million total guarantees in workout bonuses for the 2014 and 2015 offseasons. According to Paragraph 32(d) of his amended contract, the workout bonus is "null and void" if the player fails to report.

That "failure to report" clause is the one not present in the sections for his base salaries. In almost all other contracts, it would be.


That means, even if he is suspended or unable to report for any reason, the Patriots still might be on the hook for $1.323 million in 2013 and $1.137 million in 2014. It's unclear why the "failure to perform" or "failure to practice" clause is not present in Hernandez's contract.

Thanks to the missing clause, Hernandez might be able to keep monies that normally would have been voided even if he's not able to practice or play. For instance, the NFL recently won a grievance to show a suspended player's guarantee was no longer guaranteed after a suspension of four games.

Hernandez's deal does have offsets. If he's eventually cut and another team signs him, his new salary would cut into the $2.5 million he's guaranteed to be paid by the Patriots.

Neither Hernandez's representatives at Athletes First nor members of the Patriots administration were available for comment.

No but you can pay someone to kill someone for you.

Good stuff.  If I read that correctly, the most he could hope for, is something like 18-20mil out of the 40mil total?  And he will have to spend a ton of money on attorneys to even get that much.

In a statement, Aaron Hernandez's attorney, Michael K. Fee, denied a report that an arrest warrant has been issued for his client.
"Over the past week, our client, Aaron Hernandez, has been the subject of a relentless flood of rumors, misinformation, and false reports in the media," Fee said. "These include the repeated publication of a supposedly confirmed report that an arrest warrant had been issued for Aaron, a report that was exposed as untrue. None of these false reports come from official sources and we appreciate the professionalism and restraint shown by the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office to date with regard to its public statements while its investigation is underway. Out of respect for that ongoing investigation, we will continue to refrain from commenting on its substance."

I feel sorry for what the family of the dead guy are going through.

Not much about the other two guys with him that night.
Looks like he's the prime suspect?
