Patriots waived the right to recoup bonus money from Aaron Hernandez by releasing him

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New England Patriots won’t be able to recoup any of Aaron Hernandez’s bonus money after releasing him today.

If the Pats wanted to get the bonus money back, they probably would have had to keep Hernandez on the roster and wait for him to go through the legal system and receive a prison sentence.  Now that he’s on their roster they’ll lose a big chunk of money.  But it’s not about the money for the Patriots.  It’s all about the principle.
