Aaron Hernandez will probably never be able to make it rain again, but maybe his family will

The NFLPA has filed a grieveance against the Patriots looking to recoup the guaranteed money owed to Aaron Hernandez. The team released the star tight end in June after he was arrested on charges of first degree murder.

It's not exactly the greatest looking PR move for the NFLPA, but it's not one they can help much. It is their job to fight for the players in situations like these, and despite the circumstances of Hernandez's arrest, they can't legally just ignore it.

The Patriots may be forced to pay the above amount too. Typically, contracts include a "failure to perform" or "failure to practice" clause that void guarantees. According to a report from Ian Rappaport back in June, these are missing from Hernandez's contract.
