    I know we have the whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing in this country, but Aaron Hernandez has done absolutely everything he can to make himself look guilty with his actions. I am not saying he pulled the trigger, but he definitely was in on this thing somehow. Glad this guy is in cuffs.

    Oh and if anybody says anything about the Rams making a waiver claim on him, I will automatically neg rep them.

    He'll go to prison as a tight end, come out as a wide receiver.

    That's too bad for the guy. I have no sympathy for him getting involved in such low-life behavior when he's living under financial stability in the NFL.

    Will the Patriots be on the hook to pay his signing bonus?
    The CBA provides an out but the Patriots cut him so the out is no longer relevant.

    I'm sure every contract has a crime and moral clause. He shouldn't be paid for what he's done in the first place.

    I saw something on ESPN stating they might still owe him 2.5 mil

    What we're hearing around here via the media is that Hernandez is due a 12.5 million signing bonus spread out over the 5 year contract. The rumor is that the Pats will not pay any of the remaining bonus and take it to court.

    Here is the motive.

    Aaron Hernandez investigated in 2012 double murder

    By Maria Cramer

    Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, already facing charges in a murder last week in North Attleborough, is also being investigated in connection with a 2012 double murder in Boston, according to two law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation.

    Investigators believe a fight broke out at Cure, a club in the South End, between two men and a group that included Hernandez.

    The two men, Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, friends who grew up in Cape Verde, left the club with three other men in a BMW sedan.

    Abreu, who was driving, stopped at a traffic light on Shawmut Avenue, about to make a left onto Herald Street, when a silver or gray SUV with Rhode Island license plates pulled alongside the sedan. Someone from the SUV opened fire, killing Abreu, 29, and Furtado, 28.

    The men who were with them survived the attack and the killings were left unsolved.

    The officials said investigators now believe that Odin Lloyd, the man Hernandez is charged with killing in a North Attleboro industrial park June 17, may have had information about Hernandez’s role in the double slaying.

    “The motive might have been that the victim knew [Hernandez] might have been involved,” one of the officials said.

    The new revelations raised the specter that Hernandez might have been playing football games last season with the Patriots after he had participated in a double murder.

    Hernandez pleaded not guilty Wednesday to murder and firearms charges in Attleboro District Court in the killing of Lloyd, who was shot to death June 17 in an industrial park near Hernandez’s North Attleborough home. In other news today, a second man connected to the Lloyd murder was identified: Carlos Ortiz, a 27-year-old man who lives in Bristol, Conn., Hernandez’s hometown.

    The attack in Boston occurred just after 2 a.m. on July 16, 2012. Police said the shooter fired numerous times into the car, striking Abreu and Furtado, who was in the passenger seat.

    One of the back-seat passengers was shot three times in the arm but survived. He was rushed to Tufts Medical Center and was treated and released. The other two occupants fled the car and were unharmed.

    The two men’s deaths at the time were a mystery to their families and police, who said they had no ties to criminal activity.

    Furtado was a tour guide on the idyllic island of Boa Vista in Cape Verde, where he led a mostly European clientele on jaunts along silky sand dunes, whispering palm trees, and world-class beaches, his family said. He arrived in Dorchester five months before he was killed to reconnect with his mother and sister, whom he had not seen in a decade.

    Abreu grew up in Cape Verde, where he worked as a police officer there. He arrived in Dorchester around 2008 and became friends with Furtado. The two men were working together for a cleaning company based on Hamilton Street in Dorchester at the time of their deaths.

    Authorities never found the SUV tied to the shooting.

    Hernandez’s arraignment Wednesday in the killing of Lloyd came after a week of suspense in which media had camped out in front of Hernandez’s home and followed his car by helicopter, in a futile search for details from tight-lipped law enforcement officials. Residents in Massachusetts and beyond have been riveted by the story of a young, highly paid professional athlete who may have squandered a bright future.

    Cops impound SUV that may connect Hernandez to 2012 killings

    Posted by Michael David Smith on June 27, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Aaron Hernandez is currently in jail, and won’t be getting out any time soon if ever, because he’s a suspect in the murder of Odin Lloyd. He may soon face legal trouble in the deaths of two other people in 2012 — and police have recovered what they believe is a key piece of evidence that could tie Hernandez to that case.

    According to CNN, the Boston Police Department has located and impounded a silver SUV with Rhode Island registration that police have been trying to find for almost a year in connection with the shooting deaths of two people in 2012. Investigators believe that Hernandez was renting the SUV at the time of those killings.

    On July 16, 2012, police found three shooting victims on a Boston street corner. Two of those victims died. Only today was it publicly reported that police believe Hernandez may have been involved in that shooting.

    Police reportedly suspect that Hernandez may have killed Lloyd to keep Lloyd from saying anything about that shooting.

    There is no death penalty in MA so Aaron Hernandez would die in prison if convicted!
    Happy Thanksgiving 2014!

    Whether they pay it or not, it should still count against their CAP. I remember some teams in the past (Bengals, Cowboys ???) having CAP issues because players they released for legal reasons still counted against their CAP. Of course, we are talking about the league's darlings, and 'Boston Strong' probably made them another shoe-in for a SB win, so they probably get to waive the CAP charge.
