    The Pats had about $6mil guaranteed on Hernandez contract when they released him. I would love to see the family of Odin Lloyd get that money, and it's possible the Pats will just give it up.

    As far as the cap is concerned, that ship has sailed. The Pats never got out from the cap charges in the first place.

    The Patriots will carry cap charges of $5.092 million (up a little more than $1 million) in ’13 and about $7.5 million (up almost $3.5 million) in ’14, according to EPSN’s Adam Schefter. So, they will be charged upwards of $12 million on the salary cap for Hernandez over the next two seasons

    His family may not see any of the money. Odin Lloyd's family will be suing for that money.

    I've read that there is a loophole in Massachusetts law that essentially allows Hernandez to die an "innocent man" in the eyes of the court. Since he was up for appeal but died before the hearing it clears him of the charge therefore protecting his money from the Odin family as they would no longer have the legal grounds to sue.

    Not sure how accurate that is but I do remember reading something of the sort it in an article a few days back.

    I don't believe that Hernandez homo stuff myself. His scumbag lawyer is merely trying to paint him as a victim.

    Testing his brain for CTE and then saying his death and crimes were a result of being an oppressed homosexual?? Kinda sounds like they are going after the NFL

    OJ was found innocent of killing his ex and Ron Goldman yet Goldman's family still won the wrongful death lawsuit. It would have been easier for LLoyd's family to win their suit than it was for Goldman's family. There was already a conviction of Hernandez and even if the jury was told that the conviction is wiped out they know he was still found guilty.

    All that is moot though since Hernandez was already found to be legally responsible for LLoyd's death in the wrongful death lawsuit, all they need to determine is damages now.
