He did not deny drug use in the letter. He offered to go clean for a year if the union let him.

He also did not promise to forfeit his contract if he murdered a man. Is being in jail a material breach of contract?

I highly doubt he wrote this.

Did he have an agent at that point? Just wondering who wrote it for him.

Kurt Vonnegut?

Wow... he's really well-spoken.

That said, he should've put in a clause in there that he promises not to kill anyone.

I'll bet my life against a dollar on it.

To address that concern, I am literally putting my money where my mouth is

Literally.

Would've been a nice use of literally if only he had said blue cotton candy Bubblicious instead of money.

And another thing, Vonnegut.  I'm gonna stop payment on the check!

wow, looks like the Florida football program does stress education and professional skills outside of football. Nice letter
 
2013-07-08 05:44:20 PM  
On the one hand, he obviously didn't write that.  He did have to agree to its terms though, with the drug tests and money dependant on passing them.  I don't see how you can call it a mistake to have signed him, though I guess they blew it by not sticking more of these kinds of stipulations and protections in when they extended him.

Perhaps he uses dollar bills as rolling papers?
 
2013-07-08 05:57:12 PM  
This is fine in addressing his alleged drug use, but maybe they should have asked other questions like, "Did you ever shoot a biatch because you got dissed at a nightclub?"  Might have been more helpful.
 
2013-07-08 06:07:13 PM  
In closing, I ask you to trust me when I say you have absolutely nothing to worry about when it comes to me and the use of recreational drugs.

Murder, not so much
 
2013-07-08 06:22:45 PM  
That's a nice letter.  Then again, if someone offered to take drug tests and forfeit salary on a prorated basis for the portion that came back positive, I'd be somewhat suspicious.  Sacrifice your entire salary for a single positive test and maybe I'll go for it.  And extend the tests to the off-season.  This reminds me of when I ask my wife how much she spent shopping and she says, "Well, I didn't use the Amex to buy any shoes at Nordstrom." I believe her completely, but that doesn't make me any less nervous.

Wow, that really is worthless.  Those Top/Bugler things are terrible.

I'm a bit surprised that there isn't something standard in EVERY contract along the lines of "if you go to jail, you forfeit any and all "guaranteed" money that would have been owed from that point and pro-rated part of signing bonus".  Or even "if you're convicted of a crime, even if there's not a ton of jail time, we can cut your ass whenever we want and you forfeit all guarantees".  Even the Union would seem to have a difficult time painting that in a "it's not fair to the poor irresponsible millionaires" light.
 
2013-07-08 07:02:50 PM  
Local news sucks because they focus on one thing and won't let it go. If Boston stations aren't talking about Hernandez, then they're talking about Whitey Bulger or Zimmerman. I guess nothing else happens in Boston that's noteworthy.

NFL teams can basically cut anyone at anytime. As far as forfeiture of guaranteed money, I'm sure there's a clause in every contract regarding the NFL player code of conduct.
 
2013-07-08 07:16:01 PM  
Nope....he probably was damn good about staying clean his rookie year and maybe even up to the point where he signed his second contract...

then it was party time

And yet the Falcons still had to go through the courts to make Vick give back signing bonus money, and still didn't get it all back no?

I wrote that letter. They still didn't hire me...
 
2013-07-08 08:16:47 PM  
So, on top of everything else he lied on his resume? He's so screwed.
 
2013-07-08 08:22:07 PM  
He doesn't read cursive.

Crewmannumber6: So, on top of everything else he lied on his resume? He's so screwed.


that's the best part.  he didn't lie.  he stayed off marijuana through his rookie contract.  Instead, he did coke.  And clearly he was a better person for it.

You were asked not to sign it in goat semen.

It looks like there is for at least this one. Boston Globe reported that the Patriots have voided the guaranteed money, quoting one Pats exec as saying the contract was guaranteed against skill or injury, not off-field personal conduct.

The only way to get the money back after the cash is checked is to show that the player was in violation of the contract when the money was paid. With Hernandez, that will probably hinge on the double murder driveby investigation from a year ago rather than the current murder investigation.

To be fair, he never promised not to kill people.
 
2013-07-08 09:28:34 PM  
The only thing this letter did is remind me that biweekly can mean once every 2 weeks or twice a week. How did we get into this mess? Someone needs to fix this.

Yeah!

Besides, bi-annual means twice a year, so you know which side I'm on.
 
2013-07-08 09:58:09 PM  
He was true to his word on the drugs part.  murdering people?  he made no promises to not do that.
 
2013-07-08 10:04:24 PM  
Yeah that sounds like he totally wrote that himself

This guy is a certifiable farking clown-shoe. If I had to murder a friend to cover-up for the murders that I already had allegedly gotten away with, I wouldn't kill him and leave his body anywhere near my house.

He hired someone to write this for him, and it sure as hell wasn't anyone who attended UF... most grads from there can barely string together a sentence.

Let alone sound like they have an above middle-school cognitive ability.
 
2013-07-08 11:52:32 PM  
Nobody cares if he smoked a little pot...It's that whole shooting and killing people business that has folks all in a tizzy.
 
2013-07-09 12:25:25 AM  
I'm just amazed that people are still surprised when a player from University of Florida gets in trouble.  I think the UF for that team should stand for University of Felons.
