NY Post Sports - Now that Aaron Hernandez may have his conviction posthumously vacated — under an obscure Massachusetts legal doctrine — the Patriots could owe him money, a lawyer said Thursday.

The Pats may actually be contractually obligated to pay Hernandez’s estate a $3.5 million bonus that was stopped hours after his murder arrest in 2013, attorney William Kennedy told the CBS affiliate in Boston.


Aaron Hernandez killed himself, got his family the rights to his estate, and now gets them $3.5 million? What an insane turn of events for a family who must have thought Hernandez's success was never going to amount to anything after his initial arrest.

What do we think?
