Questions remain on Aaron Hernandez wealth after conviction erased
Could the team be back on the hook for nearly $6 million it withheld from Hernandez after he was charged in the killing and the team released him?
There are no clear answers.
A lawyer who represents the family of the man Hernandez was convicted of killing said he’s seeking copies of Hernandez’s contract with the Patriots and grievances he filed after the team withheld a $3.25 million deferred signing bonus payment and base salary of $2.46 million.
Hernandez was acquitted in a 2012 Boston double slaying days before he killed himself.
