I find it hard to believe that there are not escape clauses for the Patriots in these contracts.
Think about it logically—if one day after signing the guy was arrested for a mass murder and convicted—you really believe the Pats would have to pay the full contract?
I doubt it—but we will see.
There’s verbiage in the contract. Conduct detrimental/unbecoming to the league. But since the Pats hired the guy in the first place, how likely are they to exercise that?
