Aaron Hernandez will probably make $3.25 million in jail this season.
Can you believe this shit? Aaron Hernandez will likely rot in jail this upcoming NFL season (and possibly the rest of his life), but his bank account will still be raking in Ms. His $2.5 million base salaries for the next two seasons were voided by the Patriots, as was his $1 million workout bonus, but his $3.25 million signing bonus was technically already supposed to be paid to himâ€”the Patriots just deferred that payment to a later date.
Contract law and the Collective Bargaining Agreement fully guarantees that bonus no matter the circumstances, but um, murder charges might make room for an exception here. Until further court proceedings, Hernandez is on track to stack some serious cash in a prison cell.
