There is a fascinating theory making the rounds about Aaron Hernandez. New claims suggest the former NFL player took his life in order to secure his daughter’s future. Under Massachusetts law, his death (while his appeal is still pending) serves to VOID his arrest and conviction and restores him to his pre-arrest state, legally.
Therefore, the argument is that if he never violated the law, he never violated his contract because his “bad acts” were never proven or punished.

According to PatriotsWire.com:

Lawyer Michael Coyne told CSNNE’s “Toucher and Rich” Wednesday, “If these convictions are ultimately vacated — both his conviction with Odin Lloyd and his conviction on the gun charge — because of his failure to appeal, will his estate, will his child and his wife be able to recover either some of the bonus that’s still due to him under the Patriots contract or any of his pension benefits that the NFL might owe him?”

In June 2013, the Patriots withheld $3.25 million of Hernandez’s signing bonus. They also refused to pay him his $2.5 million in his guaranteed base salary. New England cited the collective bargaining agreement as their reason for withholding that guaranteed money. That’s the money Hernandez’s lawyers will likely pursue.

Coyne added: “The question is then: If he’s no longer criminally liable, has he violated the provisions of any of his contractual terms? And you know, where there’s money like this involved, the lawyers will have a field day.”

In other words, the legal loophole could result in some income, paid by the Patriots and the NFL, for Hernandez’s family. And lawyers will explore how much money, if any, they can recoup for their client’s family by scrutinizing his contract with the Patriots.

Athletes Turned Artist: Has Chris Bosh Just Entered This Hall Of Shame?

Chris Bosh is currently a free agent, so since his future in basketball in uncertain he thought he should step into the booth and become a rapper … no, not really, but he is launching a music career with the help of producer Rico Love.

Apparently, Bosh has some hidden talents aside from hitting the hardwood. According to Rico, the former Miami Heat baller has some serious skills as a budding producer.

In an Instagram post, Love showed a little love to Chris who he said has “talent.”

About 8months ago the homie @chrisbosh reached out to me via twitter saying that he had a passion for music production ! I told him that I had a huge respect for his talent and it would be an honor to help him develop his abilities musically. A few days later we were in the studio and the first night we worked, we cut 5 songs. One of those songs we crafted was a record called “Miss My Woe”! Shortly after i played it for @laflare1017 and he immediately put down verses. We’ve done about 20 more songs since then and have formed an incredible bond. I’m proud to call him a friend and brother! So happy that he and his lovely wife @mrsadriennebosh were present at my Surprise bday wkend! We had an amazing time! Love u bro! Thanks for answering all of my basketball questions lol ! #TTLO

Bosh may already have a bonafide hit on his hands with Gucci Mane’s “Miss My Woe”, but some of his other NBA cohorts have not been so lucky. Kobe Bryant, Iman Shumpert, Chris Webber, Allen Iverson and many more have tried their hands at a music career, but it was Shaquille O’Neal who delivered the most memorable line is athlete-rapper history … “Kobe, tell me how my a** taste.”
