In response to Pats-bilbo's comment:
I think BB is in Europe on Vacation. Probably met with managment and was asked a bunch of questions and I would think he would rather face the police at this point.
I truly think he will never play another game in a pats uniform.
--- " I am a happy fan, a proud fan and I want us to win every game 28-0 but as long as we win, the team is united and has a sense of respect to the community and the game I will be a patriots fan and damn proud of it." ---- signed a pats fan from middle earth
What happens to his contract, guranteed money, will the Pats have to carry the dead money in the future? I doubt anyone picks him up if he walks, How does all this work?
Contractually they may be off the hook. All contracts have so-called "moral clauses." It depends on the wording and conditions.
Right now, BB and Co. Need to be re-drawing the offensive play book to prep for less use of TEs. We don't even know when Gronk will be back.
You might be correct about money owed. Wonder about the n bonus paid out. "Normal" situation Pats would incur $10m dead money hit. Of course this is not normal and remains to be seen how the $$$ play out
It all depends on if he gets convicted, but before that he has to be arrested for the crime to begin with. Obstruction isn't enough to recoup the money, however, if he's convicted for murder or assistant murder then they can bring the issue up to recoup the bonus money and get a credit for the cap.
