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. By releasing Aaron Hernandez today, Patriots have waived all rights to recoup bonus money or salary through the CBA. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 26, 2013 Aaron Hernandez's new salary-cap charge in 2013 is $5.092 million, an increase of $1.019 million. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 26, 2013 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.     Need NFL Tickets?
